    The platinums on the X1, X2, X20, X22, 23, 24, 126, 529, X3, X4 and X5, all have USB Sockets.
    The platinums on the X10, X12, X51, 997, 934, 935, 936 and 937 don't.

    I’ve seen quite a few platinum buses on the 255 recently, plus crimson ones. Have all the old ones been withdrawn?

    Plus the 1 also now seem to be crimson. Are they different buses or just repainted?

    The hybrids on the 1 and 22/23 have been repainted crimson. The 22/23 ones are now allocated to the 61/63.

    Now allocated. Along with Wolverhamptons hybrids. 6/6/6 split on there now, 6 Platinums, 6 hybrids and 6 Tridents.
    Saturdays see Tridents replaced by B7RLEs.

    Same buses, repainted.

    Only at present due to the reduced pvr's as a result of Summer Timetables, I expect the 255 to be back to majority Trident's from 2nd Sept

    I've used the X4 and the X5 for three weeks last month and never saw a single USB socket at all, the only thing that they seem to have over the regular routes is wifi and a audible next stop announcement.

    Which brings me to my next question, when will or is NXWM likely to roll out the audible next stop announcement technology onto their Red buses?

    You probably have just never noticed them then.
    They are definitely there and found under the seat infront of you.
