Gainsborough-allocated Dart SLF 35131 has lost its ‘Bassetlaw Belles’ Rita the Ranskill Belle branding following repaint. We would welcome observations on whether Dart SLF 35128, which we understand has received a repaint in recent months, is also missing its Marie the Mattersely Belle branding.
Two Dart SLFs remain in the main fleet at Lincoln, 34849 and 35138, whilst 34477 is in the Reserve Fleet. 34849 retains ‘Low Floor’ branding along with ‘Stagecoach in Lincolnshire’ fleetnames.
