A couple of questions

Are services 62 & X6 run from Peterlee or Deptford?

Is service 689 run from Hexham or Consett?

689 from Consett again. Does a mix of 682/683s inbetween.

X6/62 are Deptford I think

At one point today all 65 buses were in the 2019 Corporate Livery. 

And 1/2 of 60 buses aren't on the route, but are on other routes (55,700,39)

When does it come to the point when these brandings are out of control, might be good for the company advertising the routes to passengers thinking that we can get this bus between A to B, and good for enthusiasts, but I feel sorry for the passengers who will get confused to hell with all these brandings and on wrong routes, and we still got the Peterlee purples, graphite, blondes and silver brandings and anything else gne can think of to go yet, should of used one brand for all local services from deptford and Washington depots as the Sunderland and district 2 tone colour brand and take off the route brands off the bus.

It does seem chaotic at the moment, this week started as last week left off with X Lines on standard routes, Berries all over the place and Purples doing anything going...

Tbh with Cherrys & Voilet both being MB's, it is quite hard to distinguish them in the bright sun, or in the shade + the dest isn't the clearest in the blazing sun, almost got on the 55, instead of the 35.

Who ever allocats buses for deptford what on earth are they doing....

There is a drifter on the X20

X20 on the 60, a X20 on the 20, 20 on the X20

There is 4 60's the other day on the 9/55/39/2A.
