Oh, ok, thanks. I got excited for a minute because I thought we where going to get some e200 mmcs :lol:
I wish we could get some in the future (Maybe for a possible service to the new railway station! :D ) I'm sure they would be more reliable than a streetlite, plus they seem to be of a higher build quality!
Hopefully, they are way better that streetlites definitely

I've been told that all 3 Darts at Worcester, plus Solo 53049, are now withdrawn. Can anyone confirm this?

I’m not sure sorry Adam, but what is going to happen with the darts when they are withdrawn? Will they be transferred/sold on or scrapped/used for parts?

My GUESS is that at least one will go back to Potteries, and that 53155 will come the other way, possibly very soon ??

Good point DD12. I was thinking that maybe 53155 will come when the 2 Streetlite Max's go (but your guess makes more sense seeing that the darts are smaller)

Actually Willr7, I had forgotten about the Streetlite Max's going north -- -- but that raises another question in my thick head, and that is why they didn't they go right after the last reductions to the 44 service ( - I believe the promotional "thing" on the roof of the StreetDecks changed from "up to 7 buses per hour" to "up to 4 buses per hour").

I honestly don't know, but I guess they've just been using the additional Streetlites on City routes, especially while the Mercedes have been gradually entering service (with their electrical problems) it would make sense to keep them as long as possible for breakdown cover and especially now the Dart's have been Withdrawn... Then again First probably have a completely different logic :lol:
