And there was like 2 drifters on the 9/5 but a 60 on the 2/2A. I think 5369/5376 either will become the dedicated spare for the 60, if and when they get repainted .
Does it matter?,would you rather have the bus not turn up at all?
Kind Regards

If it doesn't matter why brand them, if they are going to be all mixed up whats the point in branding.

Alls i can say is it is to make the buses look more attractive and to influence that the bus is a better source than a car.
When it comes to brands alls it really is is it being a bigger advertisement for a route. really getting customers to try this route if they havent.
Anyone know why 3942/3 have been off for ages.

Might be going back on the X10.

I don't see why tbh. They aren't Euro 6. 

Also what happened to 6334, that has been off for ages.
5426 had a massive pannel missing today as it was coming down A690, something happened and it must have came flying off. There was no sign of it on the bus so it may have flew off somewhere probs on the A690 earlier. 

Was replaced when it reached Sunderland Interchange.
Not sure it’s been mentioned anywhere, but a crusader B9 appeared to have broken down on Saturday while operating an X10 (I presume) the bus seemed abandoned in the bus stop at Dalton Park, for at least two hours, which did cause difficulties for other buses using the stop.
