I don’t know the route well but obviously it’s a solo 9 times out of 10... whoever allocated that must have been having a laugh!

Pretty much. the 10 is the least used Bedford service. Anything bigger than a Solo is overkill. Although Darts and Enviro 200's work it when a Solo isn't available

Had 19583 on the 9B, 34428 on the 9 and finally nailed winner 39699 on the 50.18104 not faring too well on 1617 50 from Kettering today as tracker showed it 84 late at Rushden, behind the 1713 50. Looks like the trident has turned around at Radwell to return to Kettering now just 13 late. 15403 will pick up debris to Bedford and back.

Rare for Bedford 10726 on W7 to Wellingborough.

Whilst I suffer on 48023 on a 6, rail passengers for Wellingborough are treated to 18404 and 15667. First time I have seen two deckers in one evening on the W7.

Not exactly a Stagecoach in Bedford happening but Kettering vehicle 18101 successfully reached Bedford but refused to return on the 0836 50. All the passengers had to wait for 15405 on the 0936 whilst the disgraced trident is still in the bus station.

That one is from Peterborough. I've just had a ride into town on 37234 (SN64OLP) also on loan from Peterborough

I assume 37325 is actually 37235. Looks like two more winners to reel in. But is it three? The tracker claims 19601 is heading to Biggleswade on the 1215 73. Some feat if true as it was shown to have worked a Fulbourn 3 earlier.

I passed 19705 on a 4 yesterday so waited to have it on a 8 or 10 when it returned but this proved futile as it swapped to a common 5 so game over.

Winner 37235 on the 1745 3 home but missed 19601 on 1715 73. The W7 featured 19012.

I managed two winners today with 37234 on the 0839 42 to Flitwick and later 19574 on the 1515 73 so four newies raked in this week.

Last week I finally scored 11280 on the 0656 X5 to Cambridge on the 18th arriving 25 minutes early as the government finally found a solution to easing traffic congestion persuading people to work from home.

I was thwarted scoring 11279 on the same service two days later as it became lame so I had to make do with 19888 instead which was dud for Cambridge but again arriving 25 minutes early. Must have been boring for the driver festering almost an hour before the 0910 return.

On the 16th 34428 was on a 4 and 36301 on the Wilstead shuttles.

W7 vehicles noted were 28625, 28630, 37042, 37045, 37048 and 37049.

On Monday 23rd I finally got winner 11279 on the 1326 X5 to St Neots for 11280 back on the 1410 from Cambridge.

I see 54307 did the 0810 and 1045 73's at least on the 24th which must be a rare event. The following day 11280 was on the 1015, 1115 and 1215 51's before being swapped with 34428. Also out that morning were 18101 on the 0735 50 and 18104 on the 0936 50.

I suspect 54307 has gone rogue somewhere as it has been tracking on 73s for the last three days, but appears to be on an X5 at the same time! (And also in Luton and Milton Keynes at the same time this evening). A look on the map associated with the journeys shows some strange things going on!

On Tuesday after apparently arriving in Bedford at 13.00 it then managed the 13.40 departure from Cambridge according to the tracker.
