Hopefully something for the North East, new buses will be more likely for the E's, if they move to Sunderland.

15 Enviro 200 MMC's with at least 2 or 3 spares... with USB and WIFI fitted

Buses not used on the E's on a Sunday to be allocated to a different route

Do they need E400's during the day though?, maybe have a mix of new single and double deckers?

Usually at some point in April when Stagecoach confirm there orders, I would imagine they will have ordered something for the Megabus given the first batch of Elite i's are coming up to 7 years old, I would think they would move these on to other services to replace the older Van Hools in the fleet.

I would also keep an eye on my flickr group for 19/69 reg buses as their will always be something popping up - https://www.flickr.com/groups/3146251@N21/

E1 definitely needs deckers, as for the E2/E6 I would say singles would do the job but as they interwork with one another I would go with deckers.

I'm not convinced there's many times where the E1/E2/E6 do need double-decks!

When the schools are off and it's a warm day, yes... Some peak-time journeys during term time when kids are also using these services to go to school, probably yes... Combined with the Go North East 20/20A, there's a bit of bus overkill on the Sunderland to South Shields corridor, lots of buses which aren't anywhere near full to capacity...
