Ashington's 7525 seemed to make an appearance at Blyth on Saturday evening on the short 308 extras for the Blyth fireworks. 7617/32 look to have been the other buses used.

I believe 6 buses were used on there for the return trips - even a Pulsar for the second journey out (well, the first from the correct stop! - don't think the huuuuge queue will have appreciated that) Undecided

Think the Pulsar and driver had came straight off the 2 to help out, so probably not an awful lot of time to go and get a decker swapped for him.
1461 has been working for Ashington on the X21/22 circuit today.

It fancied a day out.
They look like shite but 1461/2/3 are a much nicer drive than Blyths long time Pulsars 1501-5.

Certainly had a good turn of speed, and held it well top end, while I was on it. Externally though, as you say, it left a lot to be desired to say the least.

All of Blyth's newer Pulsars are crippled by the improper fitment of Eco(no)Speed.
