Investment in new Gas buses I feel would only materialise through DfT successful funding bids. Certainly the case is probably stronger now for future chances.

Ye true, and we already have the refueling station etc....so could have a good chance, when funding comes up again.

22512 is the same, along with around 20 of Slatyford's fleet.  Other priorities presumably.

More than likely

I can’t find anything to suggest it did. Even when it was Busways. It might have when the PTE ran them but even then I can’t find anything to suggest, so I don’t believe so.

The only variation I can remember is  the 40 used to turn right towards church walk when at the Westbourne junction, then turn down station road back towards Wallsend after Walker terminus.


The 39 used to run all the way down Welbeck road and turn right at the bottom towards Walker teminius.


They changed it around so the 40 now misses out the terminus and heads all the way down Welbeck before heading to Wallsend, with the 39 now turning at the Westbourne/Welbeck junction and terminating at Walker.
