5398 & 5399 are the first two Coast & Country Streetlites to go for repaint into the new Country Ranger livery.

Demonstrator/loan Streetlites 9050 and 9062 have transferred to Chester-le-Street to cover them:

They still need to Finish Peterlee Purples, S&D Blue/Blonde/Silver/Cherry. I'd imagine the Blonde & Silver will be complete after the Peterlee Purples are done, as Ex IndiGo's are going onto the Blonde & Silver. 

These i'll probs take till Jan. Wonder what is being done after.

The repaints for the 35, just seem to of been stopped - unless, repaints have continued and just haven't been reported.

Surprised the 33/38 haven't been done yet, as its only 3 Solo's.

5296 and 5297 are both at Saltmeadows currently for their Cherry repaints. 5293 is off service at Riverside but once complete that will also go for a Cherry repaint.

The 33/38 will be completed after the Peterlee Purple repaints - 661 is the final example for Peterlee Purples, and is due to go for repaint on Monday at Read Commercials (with 659 returned to Go North East in lieu). Two are completed every three weeks at Read Commercials.

Well, 96/97 are from the same depot. The now Country Ranger are split, if they are intent of keeping each fleet seperate then I would do seperate for 8/78

To cover the purples,graphite, blonde and silver?

I wonder how long it will take for the blonde solo to be on another route

Believe so - one for the 204/204A and the other as the general Peterlee spare.

I forgot about a spare At Peterlee, the bus that does the Monday to Saturday 204/204A will probably do the Sunday only service 59, is there any co operate colour streetlites spares based at Peterlee for the 65 or does the spare come from deptford

They could be used as the dedicated spare for the 9 or 60 for 9062.
