With the recent influx of both new and second hand Hybrids into Speke can somebody tell me which Commanders have left and where have they gone?

Any idea why they would choose to put Commanders in the training fleet? It seems an odd decision given that in many places Cadets are running on routes that would clearly benefit from larger vehicles. Why not put Cadets into the training fleet instead? They are over 10m long and I'm pretty sure they're 2.4m wide in which case they meet the DVSA minimum dimensions for a driving test vehicle.

Yes - 2593 and 2594 are for Green Lane as you've said

Apparently 2577 and 2588 are also for the training fleet. 2592 is for the pool fleet

Seen a pic of all four lined up there, they look great, 4129 & 4411 are two of them, unsure on the other two but they're another B7TL and Enviro400.
