19442 was making a rather loud metal-to-metal noise, the sort of sound you'd hear from wore out bus brakes - but obviously when it was accelerating! Could hear it from my office at work when it was going past! It's been resolved now I believe. 

19202 transferred to East Midlands (Lincoln) two years ago from Walkergate with 19201. They joined 19142/6/7/8 which they received three years ago on the back of the E400MMC investment on 62/63. If I recall 19201/2 became surplus on the back of service changes.

And all arrived back Saturday afternoon.

No Stockton won't be re-branding them.

Missed that 22026 was mentioned, was just an extra pair of hands while MMCs were away at Cheltenham.

Just a question - has the X34 during its existence ever stopped at Heworth at any point?

Not legally, but I have seen passengers disembark at Heworth before, presumably they asked if it stopped and driver agreed to stop...

Kind Regards

They usually get off at Heworth when they have been away with the fairies and got on wrong bus at Newcastle. Beats me how they don't even realise they have gone over Tyne Bridge and not realised then they are on wrong bus and get off at Gateshead.
