Stagecoach Kettering 2019
« on: March 11, 2019, 11:30:05 PM »
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.

Don’t think it has been reported but Scania 15403 is now in standard Stagecoach livery ex Corby stars livery.

How many East Lancs are there at Kettering, surprised they didnt send the 2 from Kings Lynn there especially the money, time and work done on them

Could of got rid of a couple ALX400s keeping the same type at Kettering rather than different types to keep parts for

The East Lancs at Kings Lynn were Tridents. Kettering's are Scanias although both are non standard for Stagecoach

They have the East Lancs Scania’s in Yorkshire. No plans for Kettering to dispose of these, these are the most reliable fleet of buses in the Midlands fleet believe it or not!

15405 now in Stagecoach livery, seen yesterday evening, completing the repainting of all 5 from the Corby Stars livery. There are now no Corby Star liveried vehicles left in the fleet now.
