Stagecoach have a media contract, and that extends until a week after the Paralympics finish.

Some of the deckers should be home by now (or soon), replaced by single decks

21004 telling the world it was on an X12 earlier. Mind you, it was on Morecambe Road and actually moving, does that qualify for an X-prefix?

Maybe the vehicles chosen to be bike buses weren't the most reliable members of Kendal's fleet or they don't like climbing too many hills!

20711 on the 551 to Arnside with a less than impressed female driver. No idea why, 711 sounded in fine form!

Probs the same female driver I had on the 555 earlier this year and didn't like how much change I used for my ticket.. :-x

It would be really nice if at least 1 of the K7**DAOs was kept and preserved when they are taken out of service at Kendal, What would be even nicer is if they were converted back into normal livery as they are a lot better than most of the newer stuff, but we all know that'll never happen :(

Had the pleasure of having ride on one of Morecambe Scanias, between Barrow and Ulverston early.
Dispite what have been said about Scanias on here, 15819 did not half move, and was a very smooth ride too.

Can't keep two Solo's on Moorclose, but we can coaches!
52635 is on 50 AND 52628 on 51 at one point this morning!

As i passed thru workington after dropping 14248 off on my way to Carlisle depot noticed them both out. Poor allocating I think 2 low floor darts on short X5s and 2 coaches on town something not right there.

Does anybody know what happened to the deckers that Travellers apparently had sitting in one of their depots?

Just going off the allocation sheets. If there are early morning brakedowns not a great deal can be done.

Ex SCNW 20715 & 20718 are now with DJ International and they are hoping to add another 2 K reg ones bringing the total in the fleet to 8.

Ex SCNW 42565 is with Stuarts of Carluke and is about to bite the dust.

F201/2FHH still going with WJC and look on their last legs.

Cost a fortune to buy one of them, the seating alone makes them very attractive to an Independent operator.
