If the space were needed on site and routes were to go, I can easily see the 360 moving to St Helens whom have previously operated it. Wouldn't be hugely surprising to me if the 362 moved with it in that scenario

Yes in that scenario, I agree with what your saying, and I did kind of think of surprise, when I heard Bolton operating it, as I kind of thought its out of there operating area. Does the route currently into work with the 575 at Wigan?

575 goes to 362 and theres still 1 interwork from the 715 to the 360 rest start dead from wigan/golborne but if 360 and 362 did come to st helens i dont think it would be done forever just until they get some land somewhere

I agree with you totally, on that. Im just wondering if there is any possible sites, Arriva could use for the new depot. I Can't think of any off the top of my head, outside of Bolton seems more likely.

There is the old mail centre in Farnworth that is up for sale. Maybe a bit too big though (and expensive)

Ince? Can't see that.

There are plenty of places knocking around off the top of my head at Wingates in Westhoughton or the Mark One depot at Breightmet. Anything down in The Valley?

RE: Arriva North West - Bolton Depot
Spotted a couple of Solos travelling out of service up Bolton Road through Pendlebury and Kearsley this evening about 6.30pm-ish. I'm assuming it was running back to Bolton depot after operating the 66 and 71 to Clifton.
