Just a catch up and Fleet changes from last month

Sorry its late, Ive been very busy but not many fleet changes at all for November anyway. Those that did happen have been listed below.

First South Yorkshire:
The 'Good' Withdrawn Volvo B10B Wright Liberators and Scania Ultralow vehicles have been moved to Cheery Row, Leeds. Im not sure why and can't see to find out why but i am 70% sure these vehicles arn't for service. Volvo B9TL Wirght Gemini 37229 & 37525 swapped between Olive Grove, Sheffield & Leger Way, Doncaster.

Tate's Travel:
Here for 1 month only is Scania K230UB ADL Enviro 300 Demo YN62AAK. Its in ADL Silver, Green and Blue and should see use on routes 92/92A/96/96A/97/X10/X12 mainly.

Now onto the other stuff, Stagecoach have gained a new Park & Ride contract in Doncaster. More as i get it but looks like 36717/8 will be reallocated from Barnsley to Rawmarsh for use on this. To Barnsley, two T---TND ALX300 MAN expected to be out of 22205/9/13/6 will move from Ecclesfield. These are expected to be used on route 67 with two displaced Solos been used on other routes. This leaves one board. The 93A and so on/ so forth but ill see what happens with that as it dos. I guess it will get one of 36177/83 and the 1 will get the other one.

Its also expected the Hybrids for Arriva Yorkshire will arrive during March. Its still unclear what they are but what is sure are they are for use on routes 163/6 from Castleford to Leeds. Should displace the Optare Tempos onto the Pontefract-Castleford services.

Ill keep you updated, Should be a busy few months this ;)


  1. BL Travel currently have a Optare Tempo SR demonstrator, I didn't catch the reg or fleet number.

  2. Should be YJ12 something. Its going to be part of next months as its reported during December ;)

  3. I see 22923 has come back from the dead, i'm glad because it's a decent bus to drive.
