Receiving depot is still to be decided. These are instead of the E200 initially to arrive on the back of Solos departing Carlisle.

The MAN examples, having high-back dual purpose seating, are to be allocated on the Liverpool to Widnes X5 service replacing Volvo B7 coaches. In the coming weeks, 24120 and 24124 will join Gilmoss also once 22880 and 22885 have been released by Kendal depot. All four will be branded for the X5.

24124 and 24120 are expected to transfer imminently - awaiting 22879s return from Plaxtons (MANviro 22877, 22878 and 22879 have been away for Cummins engines)

Yeah still very much on depot cloud-tech trials. No real date until they are finished, but was suppose to be for 'a few months'

Been a bit of a bad situation with that service in days of late, last two summers I've travelled on the X12 service between Coniston and Ulverston on a afternoon which also used to carry school kids, was a MPD on both occasions, this MPD was written off a few hours after I traveled on it!

Route 685 Carlisle <> Newcastle. E400MMC 11157 which operates on the no 2 board Monday-Friday now appears to operate on the no 1 board on Saturdays - was on it today and last Saturday. I presume because this is a better capacity.

19144 on the 685 today, 14.45 from Eldon Square
