I believe they are at Lynx, there is a photo online of the classic bus they have and one is in the picture

Looking back at the Hamlin Way thread there was five Tempos that was the last to leave, three were removed just before final clear out and the remaining two stayed a couple of weeks longer, these must be the two Lynx bought, the other three 25123, 25129 and 25131 left to the same buyer I am sure, funny feeling they went to Ensign

Strange to know Lynx bought from Stagecoach as was told Stagecoach offered all five to them when the operation come to an end however they walked away as the buses were in a bit of a state,

The Brylaine one in the Stagecoach Norfolk Green livery was in Spalding today, but was not in view long enough to get detail.

Looks like 25127 /8 may only be used for spares at present.

P.S. Konectbus 410/1 remain unlicensed at Lynx

25123 YJ56ATX is coming up on DVLA check as No Records.....which probably & usually means it has been scrapped !

25130 YN58FXH is coming up as SORN + No MOT.......which could indicate it may be owned, but is Stored Off Road & could be a source of spares, or awaiting repair itself ?

Thanks for this, I now know the wherabouts of YN58 FXH (process of elimination), this is at Brylaine yard in Boston, there is one sitting near shed, there is a photo of it on the other thread next to another Tempo in corporate colours which has now gone as it was painted into brylaine red

Do you have a link for the DVLA site
