"Slow mode" Pulsars and Pulsar 2s at the moment:
- CX58 EUL (2669)
- CX58 EUR (2674)
- CX58 EUT (2675)
- CX58 EWO (2900)
- CX58 EWR (2902)
- CX58 EWT (2904)
- MX09 JHK (2955)
- MX09 JHL (2956)
- MX59 JJV (3029)

2669 is still quite fast despite being in safe mode. 2955 was far from in safe mode last time I rode it, full kickdown at some points!

Add 2670 to that list as well, candidate for the worst Pulsar i've ever ridden.

Seen this yesterday in Liverpool ONE Bus Station on The Belt (26/27) - it must have stayed on gear one from the traffic lights all the way to the turning point at the other side!

I'm unsure on what'll be sent there for the service, however I suspect that the remaining T-PNB Plaxton Pointer 2s and X-OBN ALX200s will be candidates, along with Bootle's two oldest buses - Plaxton Pointer R604 MHN (2104) and Plaxton Pointer 2 R569 ABA (7569). The 62/62A/62B MIGHT follow suit - or it might even become jointly-operated, with Bootle operating the Crosby journeys and Green Lane operating the Bootle journeys - if space conditions are still an issue inside the main depot after the 68 has transferred.

have any buses been withdrawn from green lane since the ultralows? dont think there has been and that garage still has a old fleet


RE: Arriva North West - Green Lane Depot - MPTE1955 - 03/06/2012 18:26

Green Lane doesnt have that much of an old fleet, think of the number of Pulsars it has.

Nothing has been withdrawn at Green Lane since 5320 in April. On the contrary Green Lane is one of the "newer" garages with an average age of 6.5.
