They said it would be 10 vehicles swapped each way, because it looks like they want to abolish MAN E200s off the 6/7/8 at Newcastle.

What would take the 6/7/8 place?

The Enviro 200s from South Shields.

So before anyone gets confused, here is what was planned previously:
10x ADL Enviro 200s from South Shields to go to Slatyford, with 10x MANs going in the other direction to Shields.
Then...
10x ADL Enviro 200s from Sunderland to Hartlepool, with 10x MANs to Sunderland.

None of these transfers have taken place yet. Although if anybody has any information regarding this, it would be much appreciated.

A coach builder and maintenance engineer from Penshaw, who has worked on hundreds of the region’s Stagecoach North East buses at the depot in Sunderland, is retiring after 50 years of service.

South Shields ADL E300 27740 has broken down this evening operating the "E" services and it looks as if it will be towed back to the depot.

I wonder what caused the breakdown?

In regards to Enviro 300s, 27739 has returned to service fully repainted.

I would imagine it would be the 61 plates as the batch of 37301 - 37319 are at Shields for use on services 3/4/7/8/12.

The ball will start rolling on that one in a couple of weeks, there's a few MOT's to get through on them first.

It did get towed back to the depot last night and surprisingly it has apparently been covering for an ADL E400 on the X34 today.

Sure I reported on a forlorn looking X24A a month or two back.
Can't remember the vehicle type unfortunately. 

There were also reports from a few of us on the forum (including myself) of one failing on the Felling Bypass. 
It was this year, but can't remember when.

I noted 24002 having broken down on the roundabout near Gateshead High Street early August.

Did notice both 24001/02 out in service all of Saturday though! Didn't see the third bus at any point during the day though.
