From Fleet Report 30th January

https://fleetreport.co.uk/latest-news/30th-january-2021

Quote
Transbus Trident/Plaxton President 18042 has now been returned to Lincoln following its loan period at Skegness. This leaves 10738, 19181 and 27198/199, all from Hull on loan at Skegness.

Currently residing at Hull for maintenance, from Long Sutton/Skegness are Scania/Enviro 400 15612/618, Enviro 400 19200/206 and Volvo B7RLE/Wright Eclipse-Urban 21214. Of these Scania/Enviro 400 15618 arrived on Friday 29th January, allowing Enviro 400 19194 to be returned to Skegness.

Skegness allocated Scania/Enviro 400 15652 is currently at the Scania dealership in Lincoln, whilst Grimsby allocated Volvo B7RLE/Wright Eclipse-Urban 21272 is currently at the local Volvo dealer for repairs. From Gainsborough, Dennis Trident/ALX400 17719 is current at Hull for MOT.

We understand that Volvo B7TL/East Lancs Vyking 16902/904-906/908/909/912 have now been given authorisation to be scrapped. All of these remain parked up at Scunthorpe, most of them appear to have become parts donors for the remaining ‘Vykings’ in the fleet (16907/910/913-920). Stagecoach had suggested they would offer a number of Vykings for Preservation, however this appears to have been deferred for the time being (probably in connection with some examples remaining in service).

It’s been reported that Wright Gemini Eclipse 16939 was taken out of service this afternoon once it reached Lincoln on the 15:00 due to excessive smoke pouring out the back, there was also reports of smoke inside the bus as well

The return journey to Skegness was formed with Enviro400 19318 which will more than likely be on loan at Skeg until the Gemini is repaired at Lincoln depot

Further maintenance swaps have seen Skegness allocated Enviro 400 19206 returned to Hull, which has allowed Dennis Trident/ALX400 18416 to move to Hull. Of note is that 18416 is due to move on to Mansfield, with Enviro 400 19181 being formally reallocated from Hull to Skegness to replace it.
