Large number of vehicles kept off the road at Riverside today for missing vinyls to be (re-)fitted. They're being put back out into service as and when the vehicles are complete.

The plan was for the 11/97 to be converted to Versa, 49 to be converted to Citaro, and 93/94 to be converted to fleet livery L94 today (maintaining the usual advertised features of those routes, eg Wi-Fi, next stop, etc)... however doesn't seem to have happened:
  • 4949, 4966, 5216, 5217 and 5284 allocated to the 49 from start of play. 5454 replaced 4949 and 5461 replaced 5284.
  • 4933, 5323, 5282, 5283 allocated to the 11/97 from start of play, of which just 5282 has been replaced (by 4941) thus far.

5389 has temporarily transferred to Chester-le-Street.

8324 has transferred to Riverside in lieu of this.

I've moved your post to the main thread. Could you please post in the correct thread, rather than repeatedly creating new threads? Thanks.

Just swapped over:
635 for 8340
636 for 8345

This is to release these two streetlites for Enchanted Belsay due to more capacity needed. Deckers cannot be used due to low hanging branches.
Pesky GNE driver or something.
