News from East Yorkshire Motor Services is that Volvo Olympian 631 has been put back into the main fleet at Scarborough, whilst Plaxton primo 498 has transferred from Hull to Elloughton, allowing Dart SLF 486 to return to Hull. Dart SLFs 334 and 335 are now allocated to Hull whilst Volvo B7RLEs 382/83 have transferred from Hull to Scarborough in exchange for ADL E20D/Enviro 200s 379 and 380.
