The B7/ East Lancs Vyking (3976?) That was stored at Consett since the depot opened has disappeared sometime in the past month. Must have finally gone for scrap?

Has 5484/5486 been withdrawn, as they haven't been in service since 10th December.

Thanks for confirming, are they going for scrap?, would imagine they'll be stripped of panels etc?

There are 3 or 4 Mercs at Deptford missing various bit and pieces keeping the others going. Can't remember fleet numbers off the top of my head but I think there was 2 or 3 07 plates and possibly 5284.

Thank you for the information Morritt89.

Does anyone know if the Omnideka are being withdrawn, and what is the plan for the newly painted voyager ones, as I was checking and i was relatively shocked to find out that they are Euro 4, whereas some of the older ones are Euro 5 albeit only by a few years, they were probs upgraded from when ever they came from (Brighton or Bournemouth I think)
Can anyone confirm whether 6942 has been withdrawn & What has happened to 6334.

I'm not sure if 6942 had been officially withdrawn, but it hasn't been used at all this week.
6942 left Deptford around 30 minutes ago along with 6913 (unsure where 6913 is based but assuming 6942 is going to that depot).

Also removed from Deptford by Alpha (Unknown reason) in 5290 again within the past half hour.

6942 has been mothballed at Consett (where 6913 is based).
