7425 was on the X12 yesterday. Never knew that was Belmont. I was lucky enough to have it from Newcastle to Gateshead and it was lovely I must say.

Supposed to be Redcar / Whitby, I thought, but I've somewhat lost track of where the southern division is these days .....

7425, alongside 7426, are currently working out of Durham as they are surplus to requirements at Redcar during the winter timetable period (when Redcar/Whitby's combined PVR is reduced by 5).

Ah, cheers for the info.  Typical that I'm not in the area while those two are roaming more widely!

What do they tend to get allocated to during the main summer season?

1791 was on the 15:35 X9 off blyth and an X7/8 pulsar (1493 or 1503) on the 15:38 2 off blyth. Both arrived at one time and they weren't swapped (but it is Arriva blyth depot so no surprises like) the queue seemed big for the X9 so I got 7487 on the X10 a much less packed and more comfortable ride than a dart as many would agree
An un identified X9 pulsar was also on the 1 14:32 @ tynedale drive

 0717 Gen Hosp-Featherstone Gr/0756 Featherstone Gr-General Hosp/0837 Gen Hosp-Hay is now scheduled to be A MAX B7, before running onto 306 at 0921 at Tynemouth.

This to provide extra capacity on the 0756 from Featherstone Grove, since withdrwal of GNE 46A, which most kids didn't use and waited for ANE 46.
