33472 has reappeared on the 109/113 circuit. Though it did fail this morning outside my house, a quick fix by the mechanic saw it continue in service. The remains of its Inverness branding have been removed.

Could've made me a brew.....:-x

You were the driver then? I was in bed for most of the time it was parked there. I only realised it was there when it was switched on after being worked on.

Oh and I dont think 33472 has lost its Inverness branding. I think it may have just been covered over as its still visible underneath.

today 34707 was in Penrith on the 108, there was a different dart on there last week, will a dart at Penrith be a regular thing? or just a phase?

No, it is there due to issues with the Mans and other allocation issues.

24121 on 68
47721 on 67 then 554.

No Profiles have moved over from East Scotland yet, and I'm not sure any will.

53234-6, formerly at Glasgow were in reserve to operate the service when the contract started - 53213 is due to go home to Highlands.

Nowhere near enough to a Pacer :(
thanks again, forgot Glasgow had profiles spare. A much needed boost to the service although I understand theres been a few issues. if they retain the run longterm I wonder if they wil introduce any megarider or explorer deals valid for cross border travel on the existing services from Dumfries and Annan

Had a very spirited journey down to Garstang last Thursday - well driven and very spritely. Has someone found the G Spot on the E400's to make 'em go faster? Running in period over or something? It seemed almost as perky as a charging Olympian. :) Details of time/bus etc lost in a pile of recycling in the corner of the room I'm afraid. Seriously though it's the first time I've been on one of those and it's actually felt like we were getting somewhere!

The new livery for all of the Open Toppers is the same as the 555 Scanias with the darker Green. The older Green livery is being phased out ready for next summer. Believe branding will be applied to Carlisle ones at least.

I believe all of Kendals are getting done.

It was hoped the 2 Buttermere Solos were to get done in Green but never did.

20960 has now bitten the dust at Carlisle and should be for good due to 22160 coming on the road.

34218 has gained new seat covers sometime over the last week.

22269 under prep at Lillyhall before coming to Carlisle for repaint.

34704 is in the paintshop at Carlisle at the moment and should be coming out in a revised livery like the Solos.

Indeed 33036 is now allocated to KL so that makes sense.

Probably best the Olys get painted, look a bit tired and by the looks of it may be around a while yet!

Noted one yesterday too, will be interesting to see if they are for his venture out West come the turn of the year or if they are to replace 3 of his 4 new MCV which are now down at Sellafield.
