    Northern Pacer Withdrawals - Info?

    I thought they already had 2 units at Leeming? Are they intending to get more? Is the intention to store units at Leeming as with 144's at KWVR?

    Presumably York, which was linked to South Yorkshire, will now come under Leeds?

    Competition heats up between Transdev and Connexions

    There might not he any now but they certainly did have some ex Lancashire vehicles on school services.

    Competition heats up between Transdev and Connexions

    It seems rife in the industry - Proctors of Leeming created York City Coaches to upset York Pullman?

    Competition heats up between Transdev and Connexions

    I think the whole vinyl situation is a mess. Operators are happy to stick vynls all over buses but presumably their is no budget/appetite to take them off. Therefore there are Transdev vehicles running round in all areas with vynls still on from previous use e.g. School buses in Harrogate...

    Competition heats up between Transdev and Connexions

    No different to Transdev using vehicles on School Services in Harrogate, still in the livery of its sister companies, without taking off the vinyls. We have voted to leave the EU so the more Union Flags the better! Nothing wrong with patriotism.

    If you compare the posting dates on their Facebook page with the rogue Twitter page it's fairly obvious

    Shearings' parent company enter administration

    Unlikely to happen with the large number of hotels that have already indicated that they are not going to reopen and Coach companies closing down. Where is the money going to come from once the Government stops bailing companies out with the furlough scheme. If the future prospects are so good...

    I believe that all the Caledonian Travel coaches were hired from other operators - Parks of Hamilton etc.

    Shearings' parent company enter administration

    42 hotels and a fleet on about 230 coaches + their own travel agencies. 2600 staff 64000 forward bookings to get refunded. I hope somebody will rescue the business but can't realistically see it. Sympathy with all involved.

    Transdev Blazefield

    Given that they are presumably drawing funds from HM Government at the moment, to keep services running, is this expense justifiable at this time?

    Northern Pacer Withdrawals - Info?

    According to Nick Donovan no Pacers will be used in regular service from 18th May but a number of 142's and 144's currently in store will be kept to the end of the year in case they are needed!

    Transfer of LNER HST 125s to East Midlands Railway (EMR)

    I have! It's full of statements all of which are dependent on other operators delivering promises that are made. We all know that doesn't always happen! Hitachi in 2022 might end up as the better option!

    Transfer of LNER HST 125s to East Midlands Railway (EMR)

    I didn't realise that Hitachi had already built them all?
