Looks quite smart, especially with those wheel trims

ADL E300 27731 now appears to be in the paint shop (if its exact location on bus times is correct). If so then the "get there with "E's" branding will now be a thing of the past.

Are Stagecoach going to repaint all of 27726-40 again into the new livery in the next few weeks? If so then maybe there is something else planned for these vehicles? As 27739 had already been debranded and repainted some point in 2018.

By the looks of it these days they're just mixing all the E300s on all the routes now, whether they're gas or the old E branded ones, doesn't seem to matter anymore.

There has always been a mixture of vehicles on the E's since 27723-25 were transferred elsewhere when they stopped using Park Lane Interchange.

The E's during the week is now a mixture of mainly MAN E200s and ADL E300s, with the possibility of an ADL E200 and a Gas Bus; and a mixture of ADL E300s and Gas Buses on a Sunday.

Sometimes i just think Stagecoach hoy anything on the routes, even before the crisis started it happened, they're still using the darts, why not put 2 more buses in service to replace them?

I assume 27728, 28040, 39673, 37974 and 39718 have mechanical issues as they still haven't re-entered yet. 35189 and 36976 have also been off road for over a week.

They could have loaned some MAN E200s from South Shields as 39702, 39705-08, 21 haven't yet re-entered service.

I wonder how long 28031 will be away for and if it will be repaired?
27739 has been out on 10/11 today, after repaint.

Yes if you read previous posts....... 27727, 27729, 27739 are all done so far.


ADL E300 27731 appears to be out in service on the E's today, according to bustimes.org - Doesn't look likes it been repainted.

Don't think 27729 has been done yet?

Can anyone recall when 19680 was repainted?  Can't remember now if it was late March before service cuts, or June?

Not sure what part of bus times you've been looking at but 27731 hasn't been out in service since 2nd July and since then has been tracking at the back of the depot where repaints usually take place. (Its been tracking as an E2 as that must have been the last route it operated)
Also Shield's 37318 is currently parked up in Sunderland- presumably the next one to be repainted

That's my fault i seen it had been on the E services but never clicked on it.... so never noticed it was numbered up to move around the depot!! My bad.

27731 now in the process of being painted, according to a post elsewhere. 37318 now stripped of vinyls ready for repaint and 37314 has arrived from South Shields too, presumably the next one.
