18404
« on: December 01, 2011, 08:21:42 PM »
I saw an unbranded Dennis Trident in Daventry yesterday leaving the Bus Station on the 65 to Leamington Spa.

I believe it was 18404, which is either an old Kettering bus, or a Northampton one, cascaded prehaps with the arrival of the new Gold Scanias, and cascading the old Scanias into other Northamptonshire depots.

Is 18404 now a Leamington bus.

Not as today it wasn't. It was on the X46 from Northampton to Thrapston this afternoon.

However there may well be a cascade of Northampton Tridents, now that they have eight Scania/E400s for the X46/X47 services.

Ex Northampton Tridents 18402/3 were yesterday working out of Kettering's outstation at Oundle.

 17076 is the only other unbranded Trident at Leamington. which can easily be recognized by its Black Window surrounds. http://www.flickr.com/photos/mutlysbusfots/6281875238/

 Just been told that 18400 & 18401 have transferred to Leamington, so it was probably one of these, 10402/3 are now confirmed as Kettering's, whilst 18404-10 remain at Northampton

 Also 16757 has come back from its loan at Kettering, hilst Scania 15452 has also arrived, completeing the batch. 15455/606-8 are remaining at Kettering
