Anyone know what has happened to the two green darts plus the three that are in corporate livery,  not seen them on the road for a long long time, also they don't appear to have been transfered either, 

Also is the PX55 AHF back in Lynn, did that go away for repaint in corporate colours and refurbishment

PX55 AHF did not go away for repaint in corporate colours and refurbishment it was PX55 AHJ and that being done at Peterborough at present it's still in Norfolk Green livery.
Please feel free to have a look at my photos on Flickr.

My bad, I get them both mixed up, but still all in all it is taking a while, is it now 5 months if not nearly 6 months, any idea what the hold up is

It's an 'as and when' project, which is being done around the normal day to day maintenance

Former Norfolk Green Optare Solos 47894/96/97/98 have been sold to McGills and were moved from Ely to Stagecoach Manchester’s Wigan depot last week pending collection/transfer to their new owner.

After a prolonged period out of service for repairs and refurbishment most recently at Peterborough, East Lancs Myllenium-bodied Trident 18280 has returned to service at King’s Lynn. It has received Stagecoach moquette and has been repainted into Stagecoach corporate livery.

My records show just nine operational vehicles now carrying Norfolk Green liveries Tridents 17605/06, 17786/87, 18278 and Enviro 400s 10052-55.

That would explain why a debranded 47896 was sat in Cowley Road depot on the 2nd of March with what looked like a trade plate in the front windscreen that read '402 EW'.

All of the remaining 52 plate tridents will be either scrapped or sold in the coming months so I have heard, these will be replaced by 55/56 plate tridents from Cambridge and Peterborough, but that was mentioned a few months back before they lost the 37 to Downham Market, 48 to Grimston/Gayton and the 38 to Middleton oh not to mention the cancellation of all the Hunstanton routes, after all of that there might not be a need for the replacements

Still refers to 10 service, no 11 mentioned

Also they haven't changed the stand either, online it still refers to stand E when it no stand D
