MAN/Enviro 300s 24101/03/05/09 have transferred from Stockton to Slatyford.
Mercedes-Benz Sprinters 44005/06/15/17 are at Sunderland being prepared for service but will be allocated to Stockton.
The transfer of Enviro 400 10067 from Oxford to Banbury took place on Saturday October 19th.
Unconfirmed from official sources is that the transfer of Long Sutton depot and its work, primarily the 505 Spalding-King’s Lynn service, to Stagecoach East Midlands will take place this coming weekend.
The current Long Sutton allocation, maintained at Peterborough, is:
Trident/ALX400 (9): 18335/38/40/41/44/47/48, 18416/18
Trident 2/Enviro 400 (3): 19017/47/68
Dart SLF (2): 34426, 34530
The maintenance arrangement at has meant that whilst Long Sutton has its own allocation vehicles from the Peterborough allocation have been used to allow for maintenance and repairs to be undertaken. In the image from Gareth Hale a number of Peterborough-allocated Enviro 400s can be seen parked up at Long Sutton.
