Stagecoach South Wales
It would appear that there is a slow ‘drip feed’ of vehicles being relicensed and returned to service here. Whilst we do not plan to generally list vehicles individually as they are being returned to service, we are making an exception for this fleet and using it as a case study.
At Cwmbran Scania/Enviro 400s 15964/65 and 15838 are back in use on the X3 service with Enviro 300 27279 back in use on the X24. Three Optare Solos, 47530/32/33, have been returned to operational status as spare vehicles and for use as duplicates when required.
Back in service at Porth are Enviro 200 37019 and Enviro 200MMC 26091 whilst Enviro 200s 36851/53 and a Dart SLF 34754 are now available for service at Blackwood.
Wright StreetLites returned to operational use at Merthyr are 43006 and 43007.
Few vehicles have received the new Stagecoach ‘Long Distance’ livery across Stagecoach UK fleets but several Scania/Enviro 300s have received this livery style at Stagecoach South Wales .
Now repainted into the Stagecoach ‘Local’ livery and in service here is Enviro 300 36139.
Stagecoach East Midlands
Another two early ALX400-bodied Tridents to be withdrawn from service and awaiting disposal here are 17713 and 17715, both from Mansfield.
