RE: Stagecoach Manchester
A few vehicles from Cumbria now confirmed as going to Manchester for Olympics (for now!).
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.

Manchester have got quite a few MAN's in reserve at the moment. Are they not going to be used during this period?

Also 17200 seems at the moment to be regularly utilised on the 378 route [ten past the hour service from Grove Lane]. It has appeared on a few Tuesdays and Wednesdays and also did it today.

I'd imagine they will be using all low floors currently in storage. Nicholas (if he has registered on the new forum yet) will be able to provide a better answer for you, if he wants to.

As I understand it, the Olympics fleets are still being tweaked, so I have only posted the vehicles that have been confirmed from Cumbria & North Lancs, there will possibly be more than the 8 I posted. I don't know which Manchester depots they will be going to, just know that those particular ones are for Manchester.

RE: Stagecoach Manchester
Hell, everything's been pulled out from under the arches at the moment... there's even a (in a rather dilapidated state) Magic Bus liveried Palatine bodied B10M that's appeared in the yard.

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

For those who haven't seen the Jubliee livery buses:
