RE: Arriva St Helens Paint Shop & Repair Centre
Yeah 4101 left today as it was paked up at the back this morning,on another 2466 looks nearly complete as it was out on a road test this morning after having work done on it for excessive smoke so expect it back at its own depot shortly.

not 100% sure but 7622 is in the engine/bodyshop with what looks like an engine sat behind it so may go back on road but please dont quote me on it as it may not but il keep my eye on it,as 7615 is in there too so that must be having repairs done.

I'd heard whispers about 7622 not being for scrap or withdrawal MM so we'll certainly see as to it's fate soon enough!

It hadn't even been properly cannibalised though - it was just missing a front bumper and the dash had been taken out (4 screws worth of work along with plugging in a few wires) - so for it to be here for work was never too far above expectations really. Just obviously hasn't been a priority for them!
