If i remember correctly one Bus was Written of By a Drinking and Driving Driver they had, the rest would of been scrapped as these days JPT buy anything cheap then scrap them once they become unreliable

Just googled it to find out some more information and it seems JPT have a reputation for drivers being drunk in charge of a vehicle.
It has happened at least twice!

The links don't include photos of the vehicles.

Edit: At least this JPT driver was getting a non-alcoholic drink!

The beloved Caetano's are still at Ensign (for sale)

Not sure if OBC still operate the ex-21 Tridents. They had gone onto Park and Ride duties

OBC sold all the Plaxton Presidents on - NK51 UCL/M/V/W went to Western Greyhound in September 2009 (sadly, NK51 UCL/v were two of the victims of the depot fire) while NK51 UCH/J/X went to the Green Bus of Birmingham last May while NK51 UCY went to PC Coaches last September.

last 2 trips into Manchester and i only seen 512 and 513, 512 looks daft as its got a white pannel on the front instead of a yellow one. i got a JPT Day planned for Wensday so i will keep my eyes open for these Buses for you lot, i will try my hardest to get photos aswell!

i could be Wrong but theres 2 Liberators in service at the moment and theres 2 Volvo Olympians i cant find, i wonder if these are replacing them or if its just by chance! sure things will come clear soon

Are they still there? Why don't they appear on the withdrawn area of fleet allocation.

511 and 514 both withdrawn from service, i expect 512 and 513 to follow suit with loads of other buses making their way into the fleet recently!
RE: Ex Go North East Buses living on with other Firms
(04 Nov 2013, 4:30 pm)Andreos1 wrote Is that one that appeared on the 638 or the one that came up from Oxford on loan?

I think it would be one of those that appeared on the 638 as GNE have batch of Wright Renowns with WGR on the Reg Plates also which would indicate that this was bought New and not Second Hand from Oxford.

That was a great bus.
If you ever see it/get it or can check it out - see if it still has the wooden cash tray for placing the money on

edit. Just looking at www.northwestbus.site11.com/Coachways.Html and it appears they have N209 LTN which was a SNE bus.

RE: Ex Go North East Buses living on with other Firms
Even if its a School Bus it will probably find its way back to Warrington Coachway's yard sometime during the day so might be work popping up sometime, I'm pretty sure they don't mind enthusiasts popping up to the yard and asking permission to look round
RE: Ex Go North East Buses living on with other Firms
just on my way home from manchester, was able to catch up with ex go north east P825 SGP, the bus has had another replacement pannel at the front and there. was a wire hanging of the roof....

It is indeed. Its technically un-road worthy as its speed gauge isn't working. It can mainly be seen out on the St Robert's (Washingon) school run but has been known to appear on a few school services over in Blaydon and Ryton areas.

Slightly concerning!
