4516 is currently sitting at the back of Ashington depot. According to this site. It's with Yorkshire Tiger. But I heard it got withdrawn. Would love to see it in service again as 1402 is still in service

I believe it has been converted into a driver trainer (or that was the plan anyway!)
I heard 1401 & 1402 were going driver training after they were withdrawn from Blyth. Now 1402 is at Ashington and 1401 stayed at Blyth
What happened to 4523? That was the last of that type to be withdrawn I believe....

It won't see service again, its next trip from Ashington will be Alpha's Scrapyard. Same with 1401/02 when they're withdrawn properly no doubt.

Spotters have got a bit carried away speculating that 1800/01 are withdrawn. They are in fact very much still alive & on the go.

Rumour mill is starting up again .

So can anyone confirm the following withdrawl at redcar
1432
4722
1567

Have these been withdrawn or waiting repair.
Probably awaiting repair. No doubt they are awaiting parts but there is supply issues accross the country, so no doubt for the time being they are being used as Christmas Trees until the new parts arrive. It's a common practice used by various bus operators.

Given service reductions are still across the region, these will be mothballed/awaiting repair.  1567 is definitely awaiting an engine.
Didn't know where to put it but 1402 is now driver training
