The entry into service of the Mercedes Sprinters at Ashford has resulted in a number of fleet changes. We understand that withdrawn from service at Ashford are MAN/ALX300s 22942/94 and Optare Solos 47117/73. The Enviro 200 type is being eliminated from Ashford (36124/25) and Folkestone (36122/24) with all four planned to transfer to Hastings. Hastings was also due to receive Optare Solo 47660 from Ashford as a replacement for 47174 and Eastbourne was due to receive 47662 as a replacement for 47065.
