March 19th 2019 @ 14:55: East Yorkshire Open Top Volvo B7TL moves to Go North East and fleet changes at Stagecoach West Scotland
Stagecoach South West
The displaced Enviro 200s from Kilmarnock are now located at:
Stranraer: 36142/43/44/45. 36145 was temporarily allocated to Dumfries to release Optare Versa 25228 for repaint but has now been replaced by 36152.
The Enviro 300 transfers have displaced several Optare Versas including 25201/02/19/21/35/36. 25227 is at Dumfries for MOT prep and 25228 is at Kilmarnock for repaint.
Dumfries & Galloway Council SWest Trans-liveried Optare Versa 25244 has been transferred to Dumfries depot (from Stranraer) and swapped with SWest Trans-liveried Optare Versa 25245 which is now at Stranraer. The latter is better suited at Stranraer depot and it is seat belted for use on that depot’s school contracts.
TransBus-bodied Enviro 300 27512 is currently on loan to Dumfries depot from Stranraer but is temporary and will be returning to Stranraer within the next few days.
A surprising transfer is that of open top Volvo B7TL/Plaxton President 885 from this fleet to the Go North East fleet, where it has been given fleet number 6000.
Go North East
Optare Solo 635 has transferred from Deptford to Percy Main.
Withdrawn Scania L94/Wright Solar-bodied 4992 and 5218 along with Volvo B7TL/Plaxton President 6030 have been sold to Alpha, Weetslade for scrap.
We understand that Enviro 200s 120 and 122 are currently providing cover at Wincham depot, whilst Optare Solo 49 is away undergoing repairs at Crewe .
We also understand that Wright StreetLite vehicles 150/52/53/54/55/56 have also moved from Wincham to Crewe.
