On a side note, the diamond jubilee decorated busses made their outings for juvenile target-practice on Friday.


there would be 2 magic buses 20674/20995 plus 20882

RE: Stagecoach Manchester
Details were mentioned in the old forum regarding Stagecoach's planned changes for 17 June. Details are now available on their's and TfGM's websites, along with timetables on the Stagecoach website.

With the 371/11A, the early Saturday morning jouneys run by Finglands will still operate as a 371. The new 11A service will serve Broomwood during the day only, evening journeys will run via existing 371 route. The 11A route will run via existing 371 route from Stockport to Baguley Tesco then as 11 route via Broomwood to Mainwood Road then Thorley Road to Timperley then Stockport Road then as existing 371 route to Altrincham.

The 11 will run 4 journeys per hour from Stockport to Wythenshawe with the 11A combining to run every 10 mins between Stockport, Cheadle and Gatley. The 11 will then have varying waiting time at Wythenshawe and Wythenshawe Hospital, where it'll run a 15 minute frequency service between Wythenshawe Hospital and Altrincham.

The 15 will be reduced to run every 20 minutes off-peak and Saturday daytime, whilst running every 15 mins peak times.

The 236/237 details have been mentioned before (increased to every 20 mins, Manchester service withdrawn). The 216 will cover part of the loss by interworking at Ashton with the 236/237 in the morning, while the journeys from Stamford Park are re-timed. Weekday journeys at 5.33pm, 6.03pm and 6.36pm from Manchester are extended to Stalybridge Armentieres Square. All journeys to/from Stamford Park or Stalybridge will be re-routed to run via Beaufort Road instead of Park Parade.

One change not listed on Stagecoach's website but is mentioned on TfGM's website is the 217's 2.45pm weekday journey from Manchester is re-timed.

Also, summer timetables will be introduced from the same date on services 15, 23, 23A, 41, 42, 42A, 43, 50, 84, 85, 86, 101, 104, 105, 108, 109, 111, 168, 169, 197, 201, 203, 204, 205, 206, 207, 217, 218, 219, 220, 221, 231, 253, 255, 256, 313, 314, 330, 347, 358, 368, 369, 370, 374, 375, 378, 383, 384 and X57.

Looks like 16764 and 16765 have risen from the dead as well, so the Volvo Olympians haven't quite finished yet in Manchester.

From Carlisle we've got MAN Enviro 300's 24121 PX59 AZJ and 24122 PX59 AZL, along with 10.7m Darts 34685/6/7/8 PX05 EKU/V/W/Y (the only 4 completely unbranded long Darts at Carlisle). Both of those MAN Enviro300's had their branding ripped off a good while ago in preparation for the transfer. Their high back seats will be "luxury" probably down in Manchester!
From Lillyhall, I've so far had MAN Enviro 300's 22610 PX08 CTY and 22611 PX08 CTZ confirmed as going to Manchester, 22610 has had a full repanel and repaint, with 22611 under prep now.

34685 was new to Manchester as the batch 34680 to 85

RE: Stagecoach Manchester
Looks like AZ has finally received a second Solo in the form of 47621. It's been out in service in Glossop since last Sunday.
I think the usual AZ Solo, 47559, is now being used on the 342/4 and both then are used on the Sunday 202.

An AZ driver hinted that were expecting a second Solo some weeks back when they were permanently awarded the 342/4 and Sunday 202s, I'm guessing the Dart may stay as a back up vehicle/ taxi bus but haven't seen it this week at all.

They are for use on the 76, they are to form the latest part of the improvement scheme for the route (the first part being the peak-time enhancement of the service).
