Stagecoach orders have yet to be publicly announced but since it has come out of the bag one way or another... Stockton is getting new E200MMC at the back end of the summer for 36/37/38. Repaints of the E300 is significant for transfer, but nothing can be really said on that publicly as recipients are not fully in the know I believe. That is all that is on order for the NE.

Think Stagecoach are making a mistake with the Seasider by not having it run to Whitley Bay Caravan Park, and even if the Caravan Park doesn't let them in, they can still use the stops outside and turn around at the roundabout at Old Hartley, additionally they could extend it towards the Royal Quays and the Marina too since the new link road has opened up between the Ferry and North Shields.

Yorkshire Klondyke? Multiple road closures with buses diverted or held up.

With the Silverlink now almost complete, will Stagecoach run the 22 via it's normal route all of the time when it's next changed rather than running the afternoon journeys via Middle Engine Lane?

The current timetable is tied in with the ferry landing times with only a minute sitting time at Whitley Bay, and with a PVR of two there's not much wriggle room. Certainly going to be a challenge during the summer when the sea front is a bit busier. Believe North Tyneside Council and Nexus have some agreement with the Stagecoach too, especially for the ferry landing times.
