Didn't realise there was a batch down there aswell, be interesting to see if there's any more. In theory there should be offers on the table since no-one is buying anything lately.
According to Quack77, there seems to have been a number of Solos withdrawn very recently, 2810 from Blyth and 2815/18/23/38/39/50/51 from Durham, as well as 7484 withdrawn from Ashington. Does anyone know if these are end-of-life withdrawals, or just vehicles being held in reserve until the crowds return to public transport ?

2801/2802/2821 have also been withdrawn from Blyth, not sure what happened with the 2810 as it went to Ashington for a few days then got swapped out for 2816 instead so guess they didn't want it for some reason.

Ashington badly need some more (again) noticed the deckers are back out on the 57/57A since they're broken and 1800 is out on the 58.
1610 on loan to Belmont depot who are covering a 7 board (although the liklihood of a 7 turning up atm is still slim to none)
1411 has transferred to Ashington - tracking today on Bustimes as SP AN. Believe it is to replace one of the Scanias, assume another (1408 would be logical?) is to move soon to replace the other one.
When did Belmont get a 306 branded gemini? There's one on the 64, today.

7414 I guess? It's been there for months. Just been VOR since November.

That will be why I hadn't seen it before, then!
Moderator note:

When we first split the threads from having one single 'latest news' thread, we aimed to create more discussion with individual threads, allowing members to view the threads that they're interested in. This thread has become a little bit of a 'one-size fits all' thread for all discussion, so I've taken the opportunity to close this thread and split some of the more recent discussion into individual threads.
