Stagecoach Manchester and Wigan
Shocked RE: Stagecoach Manchester and Wigan
All the tridents Stockport have are due to enter service in September, this is due to extra capacity coz of the free bus pass scheme launched and will need extra buses. Stockport manager Stuart Roughly has said these buses are on trial to see how they perform and hopefully it all goes well and for the 68 Reg Enviro400 sat in stockport this bus has been sat there for almost a year now and all staff have no clue why its there or where its came from rumours says that an ADL employee dropped it off and then drove off and since then it's not been started and has been towed around the depot.

Matt Kitchin has said it's there for an IT project/ testing.

It does seem odd that a new bus is just sitting in a depot not earning its keep. Is this the one originally allocated to Carlisle but then identified for a trial of an all-operator TfGM radio communications system similar to the iBus in London? Or maybe someone has just forgotten it exists.LaughLaugh

19040 (i think) on the 10A from Wigan depot tonight, stands out for having MMC style livery.

I believe 19040 and 19018 are recent additions to the Wigan fleet

Big Grin RE: Stagecoach Manchester and Wigan
I seen as it looked like 19038 on the #219bus today I'm not sure if it was that fleet but I know it was an older bus because it was louder and had the light blue Enviro400 seats and also Ashton's older buses are 19086/92/113/115/130 and these all have larger fleet number and this one I seen was printed in small writing at the back so obviously it wasn't Manchester who did it and also we have a lot more older Enviro400s and tridents back in Manchester after it looks like a long term loan or swap these will be scattered around the depots and some MAN Enviro200s for Ashton for service in September

19038 has only just transferred from Merseyside.....presume it's in standard livery as it was in 'Poppy' livery until a week or two ago in Liverpool.

19054 operated a 347 yesterday so it could have been on 219 as well.
