By last weekend only 10054/55 were in service at Cambridge with 10052/53 being prepared for transfer, which is likely to include a seat retrim in standard Stagecoach material.
We have also picked up that Peterborough-allocated Enviro 200 36011, which currently carries Cancer Research UK livery could be transferred to the training fleet.
