MAN EcoCity gas-powered demonstrator WX61FXO is on loan at Darlington
ahead of 11 similar vehicles joining the fleet in January, as
illustrated by Ian Charlton, Bob Laycock and Steven Hodgson.
The movements foreshadowed in the last update happened around two weeks
later than expected. The transfer of VDL DB300/Wright 7618/9
(NK61EBG/J) to Durham has allowed several diagrams on the X1/X2 to go
double deck, usually emplying such vehicles.
Steven Hodgson reports that disposal-listed MPDs 1702/28 (T702RCN,
V728DNL) are in use at Jesmond and Durham, respectively and that 1734
(V734DNL) continues in use at Darlington.
