Reports have been received that Stagecoach East is consulting on the closure of the Stagecoach in Norfolk outstations at Cromer, Reepham and Tattersett – all have just one vehicle, nominally an Optare Solo. We understand the plan would be to transfer the three vehicle workings to Fakenham where there is currently a five vehicle outstation, normally four single decks (Tempo/E300) and one Midibus (Dart/Versa).
Stagecoach Cumbria & North Lancashire has received Trident 17036 from the Stagecoach Merseyside & South Lancashire Reserve Fleet. Also at the Cumbria fleet, Optare Solo 47616 has been repainted in the latest Solo livery.
Stagecoach West continues to reduce its double deck fleet with the transfer of Trident 18091 to Stagecoach Bluebird and similar 18376 to Stagecoach South. In return Dart SLF 34733 has been received from Stagecoach Bluebird and has replaced 18091 at Swindon. Scania/E400 15451 has transferred from Gloucester to Ross on Wye in exchange for Trident 17222, whilst Scania/E400 15875 is back in service at Gloucester after repairs. Just one of the latest delivery of Enviro 200s is in service at Gloucester - 37323. Volvo B10M training coach has moved from Gloucester to Cheltenham, whilst Darts 33946/50/53 have been sold and are no longer part of the fleet.
