That is different as all other East Midland vehicles have the Lincoln address
Sorry thats what I meant,  I just glanced at it quickly and see it still had Go West but not the Cambridge address

*edit*

Confirmed as Go West Runcorn Road Lincoln

I’m not sure that has done a few working In Hull then a 505 as it was logged as arriving in Hull at 17.05  then on a 505 at 17.15, unless it has teleported.
I did see that ex Oxford ex Gold Scania 15612 OU10BFZ was logged onto the 505 today apparently in Interconnect livery.

Former Hull based Enviro 400  19688 FX60HFK 'Andrew Marvell' was on the 505 today

Bit of cheating though as only saw the name Andrew Marvell on the front and checked the details from that

Info from East Midlands is that their rover tickets are not valid on the Long Sutton operated services.

Cambridgeshire tickets have to be purchased

For now, this is very strange as when you buy the ticket online on the app or have the money taken by direct debit each month it will surely go to Stagecoach East along with bus passes and cash taken on the bus to balance the books against Cambridgeshire Day Riders whuch means Stagecoach East is collecting the money and Skegness who are running the service get nothing from running the service

Exactly what I was thinking.
Of course though the whole situation is a bit beyond believe with the cost of operating Long Sutton must be way above normal.
