Several E400 Trident's have transferred from Manchester to Midlands
19004 MX 06 XAC &19088 MX56 FUG are already at Rugby,replacing 17127&17613 [Both now in reserve]

19085 & 19091 should have arrived now, and were due  to Stratford [Not confirmed] to replace 16460 & 16695

There are also 15 Non compliant Tridents in the fleet,dont know what the plans are for these

Steven Knight Media reports that eight E400 MMCs are arriving at Leamington (10726-33 - presumably for UniBus work) - I suspect these will oust more of the non-PSVAR Tridents, at least indirectly.

They are in standard livery so unless they are doing away with the unibus livery then I will think they are for other routes....

18 Coventry - Stratford - Evesham perhaps?  About the right number for the route and it is starting to look like one of their prime corridors.
