Reserve Fleet Tridents 18337/39/45/46 reported to have now left this fleet and have been transferred to Stagecoach North Scotland. Initially Peterborough's 18421/22 were earmarked but we understand that 18345/46 were transferred instead. They are needed in preparation for the takeover of some work from D&E in January 2019. The plan is for them to be fitted with Seatbelts.

Transferred from Sharston to Hyde Road are Enviro 400s 19514/15. A clear out of withdrawn vehicles here has taken place with MAN/ALX300s 22361/62/91/92/93/94/95/96/97, Scania N94s 28505/07 and Plaxton Primos 49892/93/94/95 sold to PVS (dealer).
