May as well take that with a pinch of salt given previous confirmation they'd enter service last month!

A bizarre decision not to have them registered as "19" plates if they're not to be used until March.

The 42 Enviro400XLB's have been confirmed to be going on the 11 and 16. 


The new 100-seater Lothian buses will start running on two popular services in Edinburgh from next month. Operating on the service 11 Ocean Terminal-Hyvots Bank and service 16 Silverknowes-Colinton, the new vehicles have been designed to improve passenger experience.

Some of them have been re-registered, 1080 (SJ19 OWV) been the only example I have seen online so far - https://www.flickr.com/photos/blaircamer...46251@N21/

The combined PVR for the 11 and 16 is only 26, (NOT including spares) and there's 42 of them all together, leaving 12 unallocated.


PVR for the 100 is around 8

I was speaking to a spotter from up Scotland when I was in Carlisle a few weeks back who mentioned some would be for the 100, The Airlinks seem to get new buses every 2 years going by the two batches of B5TL's they've had on them, prior to that the last investment was the B9's new in 2010 so I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens.
