Think they have finished with them now, 1465 is also Sapphire, 1468 however is a Stockton Pulsar.

1915 still at Durham? How has Stockton all these spare buses even though most of the Cadets have come off, 1923 off the road and 1536 not out yet?!
#10
Funnily enough...

1915 returned to Stockton this morning (presumably the fitter which brought it back then took 1455)
And
1536 entered service this morning on X22s (after a College run)

At least one of the ex-Yorkshire MAX E400s have received tacky generic "quick links into Newcastle" branding.

7601 had loads of alarms going off on the 16.05 X8 on my journey from blyth to cowpen. It started in blyth when the driver arrived and started the bus up  an alarm kept on going off with Every warning light in the cab flashing up in the cab and the speedometer loosing power whipst the alarms went off. this happened alot during my ride as well as the doors taking 5 attempts to open at the isabella. Every time this alarm went odf the driver just shruged and shook his head and carried on. I have been told by my step-dad that it could be the altinator which charges the battery up.

Which ADL E400s/Wright Pulsar 2s have Econospeed fitted?

EconoSpeed explained by DB, unfortunately they seem to think the people of the North East speak German.
