The 18 generally has two deckers and one Kinetic - deckers needed for peaks. Increasingly common to see singles on the X63 too, they seem to cope off-peak, especially on a Saturday. The MANs at Walkergate can pop up just about anywhere as they're tret like float vehicles aiding any sort of PVR on services, passed one of the ex-Yorkshire ones on the 22s this morning - the only place I'd be surprised to see one is the 1.

So is 22026 but I've only ever seen it in service!

The oldest MANs will be replaced once further Yorkshire examples land. These withdrawn MANs will highly likely be sold for scrap -  when this will happen I do not know.

I've yet to sample the Yorkshire ones myself Glen, but they sound rather nice and seem to be settling into service much better than the Kinetics. They are mechanically and sound like the MAN Enviro 300s, but carry the older ALX300 bodywork.

I don't believe there to be any immediate plans for the withdrawal of the 'newer' ALX300 (54 plate and newer) at the likes of Stockton, I'm sure information will be posted when further cascades or new vehicles are available to allow them to be withdrawn.

22022 is another one of those funny 'Route Learners' that likes to come out to play every now and again.

Difficult to say is normal since they got further ADL ones. On paper anything works anything at Hartlepool now, everything is "Enviro200" on paper rather than ADL/MAN Enviro200. Photos I've seen reflect that too.
