It transferred to Deptford last week, although in reality it was never used and has now been withdrawn (to be returned to Optare today).

Maybe, but still taxed and MOT'd, so no tearing hurry to withdraw it, although it should be gone in theory, with 2 Solos having come in.

I will be slightly sad when we no longer have 619 trundling around our country lanes, as the MPDs have served us well over the years - it's the end of an era . . .

Is 619 ever allocated to service 74? Tyndale Links 74 has always been a Solo recently. I rarely see a Citaro on it.

5401 has a peppa pig small advert on the back, and its cut some of the Beamish branding on it... looks daft.
