Both 4115 and 4211 were out on the 79 today together with a pink Gemini which I assume was 4438.
Is Speke to get any replacements for 2599/601/02?

Green Lane sent 3 pulsars to Winsford so does that mean three Winsford deckers to Speke ?
Didn't Winsford take Geminis 4476/77/78 a few months back? It could be them that are returning.

Speke received three Commanders from St Helens to replace 4476-8
4478 is at st helens maintenance dept wearing its quuen Elizabeth birthday wrap
Speke has a habit of letting go of deckers in exchange of inadequate, smaller vehicles. Remember when Presidents 4000/01/02 were transferred to Birkenhead with three Cadets from Wales coming to replace them? Speke were lumbered with them for 4 or 5 years.
Unfortunately when other depots have been after some double deckers the top brass have seen there deckers as easy pickings , Arriva seem to give Speke double deckers on a regular basis though.
