the 540 from Wigan to Bolton has seen several E400s on daily diagrams recently, previously I've noticed only one daily diagram. This is a good sign as this route is very popular.

Tbh Tim I think it's more a case of Bryn having received extra E400s from Manchester to replace the elderly MAN ALX300s and in typical Stagecoach fashion they get shoved out on anything lol. 600 has been almost 100% double deck on a few occasions lately

I don't think that 10840 will be a permanent fixture at Rock Ferry. I assume that there will be a few short term loans from Gillmoss to both Rock Ferry and Chester until the Merseyrail upgrade is complete.

18327 MX05WHV seen driving into White Lund today. This is one of those painted green as backups for the 555 a couple of years ago. Still painted green and still carrying "Kendal and the Lakes" fleet transfers despite notionally being allocated to Morecambe. Must be one of the last Morecambe buses carrying regional fleet branding: virtually all have lost their "Lancaster" or short-lived "Lancaster & Morecambe" transfers

Now confirmed, courtesy of Steven Knight Media, is an order for 7 Volvo B5TL / Wrightbus part open toppers for the Lakes 599 service / Kendal depot. It is further reported that they will introduce a revised 'LAKE sider' branding for the route.

Great news that Stagecoach are investing in new buses for the 599 rather than chopping a few roofs off older buses.

These should solve the open-top problem, for the next 10/15-years!
