Stagecoach East Midlands
In another gripping Long Sutton instalment we can confirm that Hull City FC-liveried Enviro 400 19684 made its way back to Hull at the end of last week. We did manage to capture it on camera in Spalding a few days before its transfer back to Hull.
We can also confirm that former Stagecoach Oxfordshire Gold-spec Scania/Enviro 400s 15619/20 and 15754 have all seen recent use from Hull, allowing other vehicles to go on loan to Lincoln during the City’s Christmas Fair. The Scanias are due for refresh and repaint prior to allocation to the Long Sutton fleet.
The company reports the sale of Optare Solo 47407 to Ensign Bus with 47654 being transferred to Stagecoach Yorkshire, presumably for component recovery. Similar 47512 no longer features on company records so has presumably been sold.
Enviro 200 36163 is being transferred from Northampton to Rugby displacing Dart SLF 35184 to the Reserve Fleet there.
Accident damaged Enviro 200 36159 is now for disposal here.
Now officially shown as delicenced are Tridents 18103/06/28 from Northampton and 18403 from Leamington.
MAN/Enviro 300s 22832-39 which are currently regarded as delicenced and 22840/41 in the Reserve Fleet at Northampton, are all now regarded as awaiting disposal although the transfer to the disposal fleet of 22840/41 may still to take place.
