Update 20/07/12 - Stagecoach NE Olympic Movements (further updated)
myself and Curtis have been digging up useful items from the internet,
which allow me to assemble the picture as I know it so far.
In from Scotland are MAN A69 / Alexander 22527/86/9/850/1/5/6/62
SF09ADV/X/ED/E/N), Scania N230UD / Alexander 15626/8-30/40/4/5
(SF10CAX/BU/V/X/CX/DK/N) and Dennis Trident / Alexander 18001/3/4/369/71
In from Yorkshire are MAN A69 / Alexander 22541-4/636-9 (YN57MXH/J/K/L,
YN08JFZ/GF/O/DU) and Scania N230UD / Alexander 15690/1/716-8
Of these, Slatyford have 22527/41-4/86/9/850/5/6/62, Walkergate have
15626/8-30/40/4/5/90/1/716-8 and 1800001/3/4/369/71 and South Shields
Vehicles off to London are (some already gone, others anticipated)
Alexander Dennis Envrio 400s 19379-81/442-6/670-83 and all of South
Shields' Alexander Dennis Enviro 300s (barring one under accident
repair, I beleive).
Also, I understand that some Enviro 400s (including 19199/214) have gone
to Manchester to allow some of their examples to go to London - I hope
to investigate this further!
Internally, within the North East, Walkergate have gained a number of
Slatyford's Envrio 400s and the reserve fleet Volvo B10BLEs are
returning to squadron service, with 21101 (P601JBU) [at least] at
Walkergate and 21102/3/5/36/7/9/40/1/3/6-9/52/6/8 (P602/3/5JBU,
R236/7/9/40/1/3/6-9/52/6/8KRG) at South Shields.
This is a developing picture and I hope to update this summary as more
movements reveal themselves.
