April 8th 2019 @ 13:30: More 'IndiGo Washington' repaints at Go North East and registration confusion at Stagecoach East Scotland
Stagecoach East Midlands
Now back at Mansfield after long-term repairs is Trident 18035.
Our photo from Ian Knott shows Megabus-liveried tri-axle Volvo B12B 54077 which is now in use from Hull depot on MegabusPlus duties. Also there is 54079. The B12Bs have replaced Volvo B9Rs 53601 and 53602 on the work. The third MegabusPlus Volvo B9R 53605 remains in service at Hull.
The six Optare Versas transferred here from Stagecoach West Scotland will all be allocated to Carlisle. Most of the Optare Solo SRs that they have replaced are now out of service and awaiting cascade within Stagecoach UK Bus.
Stagecoach East Scotland
It would appear there has been a little confusion at Stagecoach East Scotland with the new ADL Enviro 400MMC Smart Hybrids. 11180 and 11182 have been officially listed by the company as being registered YX19OUE and YX19OUG, however 11180 carries YX19OUG and 11182 is carrying YX19OUE.
Go North East
The new Consett depot opened yesterday replacing Stanley depot.
Further Optare Solo SRs to receive the pink ‘IndiGo Washington’ livery are 681 and 690.
ADL Enviro 400 Hybrid 12006 is now back on the road with a full repaint into corporate livery.
