Update 17/07/12 - Arriva NE

For the first time in many years, Redcar has double deck vehicles for
the summer to work on Middlesbrough - Scarborough service X93. Alexander
Dennis Enviro 400 7505 (NK57GWX) has been in use for a couple of weeks
and this coming weekend they should gain 7501-4 (NK57DXX-Z/YA) from
Ashington (though presumably one of those will not come, unless 7505 is
sent back). Ashington have 7519 (NK09FNF) from Darlington in 7505s
place and are due to gain 7514/5/7 (NK09FMZ/NA/D) also. In turn Redcar
lose VDL SB200 / Wright 1429-32 (NK59DNE/F/J/N) to Darlington.

Some vehicle movements recently should mean that Optare Solos 2845-7
(YJ58CAU/V/X) are at Jesmond, with 2868/9 (YJ11OJD/E) returning to
Darlington's allocation, joined there by Dennis Dart SLF / Plaxton
1306/7 (X526/7GGO) from Ashington, where sister 1648 (R423COO) now
resides. Of the Scottish Darts, 1301-8/10 are now at Darlington and
1311/4/5 at Durham/Belmont with 1309 due at Darlington and 1312 at
Durham imminently and 1313 under repair. DAF SB220GS / Plaxton 4052
(S352KHN) is now at Stockton, with 4056/69 (S356KHN, S711KRG) due

Further MPDs now listed for disposal are 1715/21/2/7/34/5/41

Another Volvo B10BLE / Wright to emerge repainted and with LEDs is 4508
(V508DFT), now at Ashington. This doesn't appear to have been internally
refurbished as yet.
