March 18th 2019 @ 14:30: Optare Versas move from Stagecoach West Scotland to Stagecoach Cumbria whilst three Dart SLFs get revised-style livery at Stagecoach Midlands
Reserve Fleet Dart SLFs 35182/84/85 have all been repainted in the revised Dart livery - the first for this operator and all are currently based at Rugby depot but will be used as required as engineering cover where required.
Stagecoach Merseyside & South Lancashire
Optare Solo 47674 has left this fleet and has been transferred to Stagecoach South West for component recovery. We believe it is currently at Torquay depot.
Stagecoach Cumbria & North Lancashire
Transferred yesterday from Stagecoach West Scotland to this fleet were Optare Versas 25218 and 25220. It is not yet known where they will be allocated. A further four vehicles of the type are also due for transfer. Leaving this fleet for cascade within Stagecoach UK Bus will be six Optare Solo SRs which are expected to include 47949-53. 47949 has already left the fleet and is on loan to an external agency.
Due back today from ADL Anston after Euro6 engine conversion are MAN/Enviro 300s 22877/78/79. Their conversion was completed earlier than expected and as a result the transfer of 22880/82 from Kendal to Carlisle will not now take place and the two vehicles will return to Morecambe.
Stagecoach East Scotland
Enviro 200 36145 has transferred from Kilmarnock to Dumfries.
We understand that there are now three Volvo B9TLs at Bus & Coach World for ‘as new’ refurbishment.
