Repainting of the Prince Bishops

I Guess since CountryRanger now has 2 Buses done and nearly a third.
I guess the Prince Bishops will be the next one in line to get its branding done up.
that would mean all buses in the South Shields region except the 50 have had either new buses or new updated brands.

I wonder if Prince Bishops will be done by GNE, or whether the Blue will.

Prince Bishops will probably go to the same place as the CountryRangers
Its a real shame the 50 didnt have an updated '5 0' livery, it was one of my favourites

Wouldn't of worked due to the interworking with the 5, and now the 26, it wouldn't of made sense.

Shame the 50 couldnt just be standalone and just have the 5 and 26 interworking

I think the problem with the 5 and 26 interworking is that it would lead to operational inefficiencies.

The 5/9 interwork so driver changeovers can take place in Sunderland, and the 26/50 in Washington. If the 5/26 were to interwork it would lead to driver changeovers happening in Jarrow or South Shields, which would mean an additional cost.

They could work off the 20. And just change vehicles in South Shields.
