There should be two new B8RLEs put into service yesterday/today and two B7RLEs transferred over to Cambridge/Ely. This has resulted in 22325/26 moving to Manchester (have been told they were collected by Manchester drivers yesterday)

It was never considered part of the UK Bus 'Heritage Fleet' and I believe was seen as a Private Hire vehicle. It hasnt had a great deal of use since it was repainted and available for hire and I suspect that is the reason that it is up for disposal.

Happy New Year, folks!

Don't forget that all all general sightings and happenings for Stagecoach operations and vehicles serving routes in and around Cambridge, Ely, St Ives, St Neots, Huntingdon including the busway, during 2016 should be in Stagecoach CAMBRIDGESHIRE happenings 2016.

Do keep posting in Stagecoach Jan 2016 changes about things specific to those changes.
TCD813? The reg of a Southdown Motor Services, Northern Counties bodied, Leyland Titan PD3/4 FH39/30F (popularly dubbed 'Queen Mary') from the late 50s.
There's all 'manor' of stuff on my Twitter A/c.
