Had seen 22068 display the 52 towards Heworth. Didn't know Stagecoach had displays for withdrawn GNE services.

Gonorth91. I have only seen 3 Double deckers on the E services since last week end. We should have keeped the 16000's we used to have on the E1/2/3 a long time ago. Yours Robin

Hi Robin


Dan works for Go North East not Stagecoach that's how he can update loads of info on Go North East.


RBZ5459 is a good point of contact for Stagecoach info but don't hound him.

Well since the E's are moving to Sunderland, i would imagine they'll be going to Sunderland...

RBZ5459. Will Sunderland use there gas buses on the E services to South Shields when are services get changed on the 23rd. Also what will they use on the x20 + 30 to Fellgate And Boldon Asda. Robin

Obviously down to the works at Testo's, but had the unusual sight of an SNE blue liveried gas bus plodding down the Washington Highway tonight, passing the Galleries, towards Shiney Row.


Not sure how much time the diversion will have taken, but I imagine it will have added a few minutes.


Reckon it's the first in service SNE bus I've seen in that area, since they had the contract to run the 186 early morning runs back in the day.

Shouldn't be anything hugley different at this stage, as Sunderland drivers and buses have their own normal booked duties. The ex-Shields drivers will be working their routes in which they were transferred over for, being familiar to those routes and those vehicles only (the Shields drivers have not yet been type-trained on the Scanias for example). At this stage some Sunderland drivers are voluntarily in the process of being trained up on the Es and X20/30 so that they are able to cover the Shields routes when needed, so to minimise disruption or lost mileage. I'm sure that over time when things settle down that ex-Shields drivers will be type-trained and familiarised with Sunderland local work.


All 15 E300 and 4 E400 will be moving across to Sunderland, with the X20/30 likely to be seeing two or three E200 move over - looking like MAN ones atm.
