Stagecoach Manchester is the latest operating company to receive vehicles back after a short period on loan to Stagecoach East Scotland for Forth Road Bridge Closure Contingency work. 19225 and 19233 are now back in Manchester.
Only one Optare Solo, 47473, rather than the three that were expected, was transferred on loan from Stagecoach Manchester to Stagecoach Cumbria & South Lancashire over the last weekend.
At Stagecoach Oxfordshire we hear that two-way radios are being fitted this week to Banbury’s Optare Solo SRs 47831/32/33/34 in preparation for their transfer to Witney. They will be replaced at Banbury with standard Optare Solos and expect 47454 and 47658 to appear at Banbury as replacements for two of them.
