Think there is a Decker board on the X12 allocated a MAX ALX 400

Seems like there is but is usually one not branded for the X46 such as 7416 or 7420

Does anyone here know what's going on with the X7/X8 and 54 as there's supposedly a timetable change today which sees the X7 and X8 change all the times by 10 minutes at least northbound.


They have changed the timetable to the new one (just realised) on the website as of this morning (was still the old one yesterday) but there's no information anywhere about the changes.

Is it not because Killingworth Road reopened and they are now using it both ways - so no need to add extra time in the TT with it not having to go up past the DSS and Four Lane Ends.

Yeah it is I believe however they've changed it more than that as
they've seem to have flipped the X7 and X8 around at Newcastle now.


X7 leaving at 07 and 37 instead of 52 and 22 and vice versa.


Plus there's a 50 minute gap between 18.17 and 19.07 - there used to be a 18.32.

Just seems a bit of a mess not to announce it at all.

Aye that was 1766, now repaired and returned to service. 2862 removed from service tonight after a nasty accident, likely to be away for a while. Likely Whitby will gain another Solo from somewhere to help cover

Whitby can feel free to take as many solos as they need from Blyth ??? they'll give them back after a few hours as they're crap

Bloody hell.

Looks like that time I was standing on the bus and the driver forgot I pressed the bell and thought it would be a good idea to just slam the breaks on to make the stop rather than drive a little bit past it!

They're welcome to ours, too. Less likely to end up overcrowded on the 64 because where the hell have all the E200s got to?

Darlington have a few spare following PVR reductions, although 2815 & 2820 have turned up at Belmont...

Also with Jesmond getting new buses, maybe an additional Solo could transfer to Redcar, and use it on the likes of the 64s if not required at Whitby depot.

Is there any pictures of the damage 2862 was involved in yesterday

RE: Arriva North East: Latest News & Discussion - August 2019
1759 still in service, was on the 14:05 64A Departure.

Does Arriva run the X85 from Eldon Square to Hexham at 17:20 because GNE's X85 terminates at St Andrew's Cemetery? Seems odd Arriva only runs one X85 each way.

Redcar haven't been very punctual over the past two days 4707 broken down yesterday in the high street and today 1429 broke down at redcar central crossings

Also presuming it's 2862 but there was a solo at the back of the depot yesterday and today it was gone

I think the 11.15 64 from Middlesbrough had failed to operate today (would have been allocated 2870).

What's the plan for the darts that are back of redcar depot, are they going to a scrap yard or are they going to stay there for the foreseeable future

Believe it's the latter, some still have high book value so won't send them for scrap until the value comes down, still some at the back of Darlington as well.
