I know that these are all listed as reserve on the latest fleet card, but the reality is that some of these at least are being used in normal service, on an almost daily basis. Certainly, Kettering's 16459 & 16174 are more often than not on the 39 to Northampton, today being a case in point ( I travelled home on 16174 today).

I assume that Stagecoach will be operating additional services in Gloucester & Exeter, for example, on RWC match days. Can anyone clarify or expand on this, please ?

16755 appeared on the 39 today, the first time I have seen it in service for 2 or 3 months.
