Steven Knight Media earlier today reported that up to a third of this order is now being diverted elsewhere within Stagecoach. This could be any depot with the business case for the coaches.
My personal opinion is the surplus coaches will probably go to Scotland. I'd love to see them on the X5 though

I agree that Scotland is the most likely destination but I wonder if Bristols Megabus fleet could also benefit, they have a sizeable number of
Euro V coaches and the whole of Greater London is going to Euro 6 next March?
