39692,  a MAN 14.240 E200 has permanently transferred from Rugby to Kettering, with 39690 and 39691 to follow shortly. This will see the withdrawal of 35223 and two other vehicles. 39692 was in service at Kettering today.

There are other Stagecoach depots around the uk that have older buses than Kettering.

And I’m not sure where Steven Knight got its information from regarding 18157 and 18150. 18157 has no valid mot, a knackered engine and is cannibalized for parts.

18150, although it has a valid mot certificate, is also stripped for parts.

However, although for disposal, Kettering have loaned 18403 and 18410 to Northampton as engineering cover owing to vehicle shortages at Northampton. This is expected to be short term and these are not allocated to Northampton.
