There was an hourly X22 a few years ago which Stagecoach ran in competition with Avon. It connected in Heswall with the 38.

26061 on the Huntington 5 today. Looks to have replaced 47513 at some point. If it stays out, it’s on the working that ends up in Holt Cross too.


RE: Stagecoach MCSL - Chester & Wirral Depots - anw2015 - 30/12/2019 13:41

26062 has now replaced 26061 on the 5

Is 19534 still at Chester?


RE: Stagecoach MCSL - Chester & Wirral Depots - wirralbus - 31/12/2019 12:27

i see yesterday on twitter that service 1 and x1 were operating with delays of upto 45 minutes , and service 2 was operating with delays of up to 30 minutes.

Something has to be done at Christmas , with to regards a self contained shuttle bus running between Ellesmere Port Bus Station and Cheshire Oaks to help out the other parts of said route which suffer so badly the service can become non existant at times.

This isnt helped by the 1 and X1 being resourced from Rock Ferry , whereas the 2 is resourced from Chester .

If they dont sort this out with mcArthurGlen , then Stagecoach passengers may end up using the train to get to Ellesmere Port and chester which is a bit more reliable than waiting for so long for a bus , that may come in packs.

I was caught up in it whilst finding my last Gold Enviro300s ended up missing out on 27263 because of the traffic as it ended up running dead.

I think Cheshire Oaks could easily have bus lanes installed, looks like its a 2 lane dual carriageway around most of the site[certainly the roads buses use], there needs to be bus lanes on the approach roads to as most are dual carriageway, only Stanney Lane that's a problem with that being single carriageway.

Yes but it's been away for gearbox repairs after failing about a month ago on a 16. Came back monday. Hasn't been back on the road yet. 47081 has had a repaint. Only 475559 is the odd one out with the blue front now. 47081 broke down on it's first day back on the road with the same fault it went away with.

Surprised 47081 has been repainted, Expected this and older Solos would have been off at some point in 2020
