10016/17,27766/7 all turned up at ME this evening.
--- old post above --- --- new post below ---
10014/15 are currently sat in Manchester after stopping off on the way home.

They'll probably end up back at ME either tomorrow or over the weekend.

Not stagecoach related but KX57 FKW - the plaxton primo that princess used to use on Kendal town service spotted in Kirkby Lonsdale this morning at 7.30 on a 581 (whatever that is). Also travellers's new streetlite MX57 CDN (with 532 in the screen) strictly a solo I know spotted coming off junction 34 southbound around 7.00 this morning

They could well be Andy, I just remember the last time I saw it was KLCH. I wouldn't be surprised if its changed in this round of tenders.

I would expect its dependant on Bluebird and/or Manchester getting sorted with all their Olympic stuff back.

Having just got back from a weekend at the Leuchars Airshow, I can safely say the following;
1. East Scotlands ex-London Olympians are in much better nick than those recently aquired from Manchester.
2. There's a huge variety of conversions on the ex-London Tridents - generally the wheelchair bay hasn't been moved, and there's a 50/50 split roughly with seats where the centre door used to be.
3. ELC Pyoneer Olympians just look odd :lol:

We have 7 at Carlisle with 3 in service so far with the rest in various stages of paint prep. A couple may venture to Lillyhall yet.

Afternoon,

Due to Council restrictions, Stagecoach in Lancaster are unable to park in Market Place on Thursday. Instead we intend introduce a number of 30 minute road shows in the area, visiting a number of locations in Morecambe, Heysham and Lancaster throughout Thursday. Keep an eye out for the Connect 2 Bus.

That always happens with the City Council, they're a little draconian about it. Short notice organisation?

Lots of branded E400s on the back fence this morning.....

Having seen the branding for Connect 2 today I am quite impressed and like it a lot. Look forward to seeing them all done and branded up!

Also 18328 still in service on the 2a about 20mins ago.

I thought it all looked a bit cluttered and haphazard. The vinyls over the lower back window are a bad idea from inside- they're actually quite airy back there compared to the older Tridents and then they go and cover it up! Why bother with the window at all- the Scanias don't have one.

So, you can go 2 Town, 2 The Uni or 2 The Web, but what about the large chunk of the district when you have to go 2 The Other Side of the River. Nice.
