47722 arrived in Carlisle on the 554 at about 12! Guessing it was pulled from Buttermeres but no idea why.

A 62 Branded dart then went out on the lunchtime 554

47722 replaced 17017 this morning and di 1 return trip on the 554. The 62 Dart was 34697 which then did one trip before being replaced by 18357 for the final trip.

34697 then went onto the 38 so that 24122 could go onto the 300.

School runner 20712 making a rare appearance on the 508 today, quite possibly the last time a K***DAO will appear in Penrith :(

the two 104 branded buses have been appearing on a lot of unusual routes at the moment, 24124 was on the 108 to Patterdale one point earlier this week and one of them was on Penrith schools(normally a B10M)

Also if 16338 has gone does that mean all Carlisle's N reg olympians are now withdrawn?

Yes there are no longer any N reg Olympians at Carlisle.

One of the 104 Enviros is due to do the 108 everyday now as part of it's diagram IIRC with the Trident doing Centre Parcs.

20710 on 555 this morning.

Yeah I've noticed the 104 at the moment is enviro/trident to Centre Parcs and Enviro/Trident to Newton Rigg but some point in the afternoon they all swap around a bit, Still trying to work it out..

did 20710 make it all the way to Keswick?

No 20710 only did Ambleside to Kendal.

104 allocation is still a bit all over the place but things will settle down once we get our Mans back on the road.

Does anybody have any idea what CCC are planning to do with the ex X35 2005 Tridents?

2 are parked at Dalston in the Council yard and 1 is still at Barrow awaiting repair.

Going for sale.

Reay's using plain white B10 ex stagecoach M414PRN on their Carlisle route 74, what can we expect next.

Worth noting that it's not just the service 74 but the Easy Access GUARANTEED service 74. I presume this and the Olympian they use are low floor now.

Hmmm....

Do not think a E300 is due to do 108s, it should be a ALX300

Saw a Dart on Montgomery Way in Carlisle this morning, at about the right time for the first 75 of the day. It was screened "Pathfinder Tours". Anyone have any idea why? I was so surprised I forgot to check the fleetnumber.

All the LED blinds at Carlisle were tested yesterday and set to Pathfinder Tours. They should have been changed to NIS leaving the depot this morning but this one obviously escaped the net.

As we only ever have 2 out of the 7 on the road it is highly unlikely!!!

24121 is the spare bus at Penrith at the moment.

60 branded 34681 had a spell on the 38, 69, 93 & 94 today.

Kendal 18380 on X4 again today, was replaced on the 14:15 by 22607. It's been on every day this week so far on test to see if double deckers could manage, it's done fine so far. I'm told that particular one has been used for testing because it has a tree guard on, none of the Lillyhall allocated Tridents have them. Still not managed a photo though due to the poor weather.

According to the new fleet cards.. at Kendal 20906 and 20984 have been withdrawn with 20949 and 20967 the only R reg B10ms however.. On Richie B's photo on flickr it's quite clear 20949 is withdrawn and just today I saw 20906 on the 505
just thought I'd point it out to anyone interested :)
