bustimes is reporting that both 34834 and 34882 are back in the Peterborough fleet.

Doubt they will enter service anytime soon  :D

34882 is now based at Stagecoach Oxfordshire plus 34834 is not about its maybe bustimes messing up again since the last updates of the website.

Today I did 10878 on a 9b this afternoon for 37212 on a 6 to intercept 35219 on the 1350 50 running 15 late which I have not had this year so could be a winner. Also on the 50 today were 18101, 39683 and 39684. Route 2 was treated to 21363-65.

My treat to get home came courtesy of 10876 on an 81 to Silsoe duplicating 27645 on the 1615 81. The issue was that the driver couldn't get Silsoe on the screen so had Luton showing. This caused the normals a fair bit of confusion as we left 3 minutes before the scheduled service which was late. People were perplexed to be rejected for shacks beyond Silsoe with Luton displayed.

I wish they did duplicates in the days of olys but I have to wonder how this new initiative will work in the coming months if we lose some deckers and the bus way greens. We surely won't have enough buses to duplicate some busy journeys.

I noticed 10876 has a poster advertising the X12 to Skegness with the bold claim 2020 is the year for staycations. Yeah right, more like the year for lock downs and restrictions on movement.

Can anyone confirm wether it is true that stagecoach cambs have taken on 4 of the former X5 Paxton elite bodies Volvo B9Rs? Thanks in advance!

All of the Volvo B11R Plaxton Elites 54301-18 remain allocated to Bedford for the X5 and 99. Some were stored at Cowley road depot whilst they were out of service. The Plaxton Panther bodied Volvo B9R's 53612/13/15-18 have now gone to Scotland according to Steven Knight Media after being displaced by the ex Peterborough Enviro 400 MMC's

The green decker appears to be inside the garage now and the registration looks readable if you walk past the front.

My moves today involved 19581 on a 9b to town for a run on a 6 to Brickhill and back with 21363 before it goes. I did 19892 home on an 81. However, 19705 taken off 9's and sent to the garage so I did 10874 back to town as its replacement. This put me in position to do 21307 on a 1 to the hospital for 21365 back on a 2. My vehicle home came courtesy of 19888 on a 9b.

The unidentified bus way thing at the garage earlier has gone from view but as 21364 went to Flitwick on a 2 and all were accounted for I can only guess it was 21312 which is still showing at Bedford depot on the tracker.
