Excellent news. Did it specify what length they'll be?

RE: WBT Network Warrington
I wonder if they will all have the new Cheshire Cat livery or if some will have the standard livery, as 13 is more vehicles than the Stockton Heaths require ... currently ...

Does anybody know the PVR of routes running to and through Stockton Heath?

The 6 requires 2 vehicles during the day.
By my count, the 5/35/7/8/45/46 require 8 vehicles during the day, making 10 vehicles overall.
At peak periods though, some of the Stockton Heaths interwork with other services, so it's hard to give an exact PVR for just this group of services.

Thanks
Does that include routes that interwork with the routes suggested? The 22 being one off the top of my head.

That does seem logical considering the size of the vehicles they're replacing. I'm sure we'll have confirmation in the New Year though

The figures are just for during the day, based on the fact that it would take 8 hours to get back to the start on the circuit:
5 out -> 35 in -> 7/8 out -> 8/7 in -> 35 out -> 5 in -> 45/46 out -> 46/45 in

I think they will look for relatively long variants for the new vehicles, as the Eclipses often put in an appearance on certain workings of the 5, 35, 45 and 46.
Deckers are also used on the school/college workings on the 45/46, but maybe that will have to continue happening for capacity reasons.
