Is there a reason 639 decided go on a little jaunt to West Auckland via the X21 route this morning?

Yes, a duplicate which operates the Arriva Durham 6 service on a morning. The same bus does a 64 and 24 on an afternoon.

There's also a duplicate which operates the Arriva Durham 7 service morning and afternoon too, also operated by Chester-le-Street with a Solo.

Ah right, I didn't realise there was a duplicate for the 6 as well

I drove round that way last night and can confirm that it is 6375 which is now inside on the pits and being worked on.

Unless somebody is playing about with bus trackers again, we appear to have two "new" vehicles on the road -

6174 in Voyager livery at CLS, formerly 9067,
7157 in Voyager livery at Consett

Also, 6375 is now back on the road after being under repair for a couple of months.

X-lines X84/X85 had a few oddities on it this morning. Not a great first impression for a route trying to compete with the Arriva/Stagecoach offering, and the railway.

On it earlier:
2x E400MMC
1x Optare Versa
1x Optare Solo SR
1x Mercedes Citaro

7157 isn't PSVAR so it couldn't be out in service at Consett (or anywhere unless it's private hire or on a scholars without a PSVAR requirement) unless it's had displays added (not sure if it has a lift tho but I'm sure someone will know)

7157 was not legit, it was a Venture Solo SR
