Surely there can’t be 38 E400s on loan from Cambridge plus the single deckers

The E400's are not on loan from Cambridge. They're officially allocated to Peterborough and most of the E200's have been there since new . 19699-703 and 36934/36 were transferred in from Bedford.
Cambridge now has all the former busway Scania E400's from Fenstanton after service revisions meant far less guidewheel fitted vehicles were needed. Only 12 deckers are now allocated to Fenstanton.
Fenstanton also now has ex Peterborough Darts 34771/73 and E200's 37226-29/32
Bedford now has ex Cambridge, Fenstanton and Peterborough Darts 34535-38 and E200's 37210-12/14/15/30/31/34/35

Parked out of use at Bedford are E200's 36012/41-44/60-65

10013 is currently being used as the overflow vehicle for staff to aid social distancing for staff breaks.

Heard from a friend that Stagecoach in Peterborough were operating
rail replacement over the weekend with 10867, 10870 and 10873 in action.

Cannot remember the last time Peterborough did any RR.

Stagecoach Rail replacement work seems to be dependent on the management people in post at the time.  I think Cambridge has been doing some for several months. 

There is a big push for the rail companies to hire PSVAR compliant vehicles which rules out many of the cheaper operators.  In addition, there is a lot of rail replacement work around Peterborough at present which puts pressure on the usual operators with compliant vehicles. With reduced schedules, Peterborough may have drivers available to do the work.  Always an issue in normal times.
Are those vehicles fitted with tachos? Not that they would be necessary for Grantham or Huntingdon but probably for Stevenage although GN have been splitting journeys to get round the 50km limit on the Kings Lynn line so may be doing it for Peterborough - Stevenage.
