Go North East: Latest News & Discussion - April 2019
RE: Go North East: Latest News & Discussion - April 2019
I don’t think an open top would be suitable to cover on any route with stretches over 30 or 40mph as it wouldn’t be pleasant for passengers on the exposed bit upstairs, and certainly not through the Tyne Tunnel breathing in the fumes.

Wasn't any complaints from people onboard H669BNL at Kirkby Stephen last weekend on the faster stretches of the route, was certainly quite enjoyable.

I can just imagine it on the 50, kids lobbing chewing gum off the top deck in  Chester le Street. At least the local top deck window slammer wouldn't have any windows to slam Big Grin

Imagine it on the X21, all the drunks getting on in Spennymoor would be straight over the edge!

Does anyone know why my QuickChargers charge my phone incredibly slowly (as in 8 hour to full when at 20%) when connected to the 240v outlets onboard now? The 5v2A chargers integrated into the outlets charge my phone at normal speed.
I thought it might have something to do with current limiting on the 240v but the integrated 5v outlets run from this as well.
I've tried multiple chargers on a number of the Castles Express and Angel buses, but they work fine on the Arriva buses

Anyone wanting to ride the ex EYMS presidents, seems like 6941 is pretty much a daily allocation to the Saltmeadows ran 1.

More than likely for Washington for the 4.

While I think some of the deckers will be for Deptford for the 20 as I have said previously, I think Percy Main will be the other depot to get deckers for the 1/1A. The B5LH's would then move over to Consett for the Red Kite.

Yes it's still with Go North East.  It's currently VOR at Deptford and has been for the last 3 weeks.

What is the new PVR for the Coaster?

B5s aren’t going to Consett as far as we’ve been told.

Just a prediction from myself, so are the B5's going elsewhere then?
