Fair point, it has been a few years since the thread was set up as such, maybe a show of hands (or posts!) as to if you would prefer separate threads (with Lancashire then being in the North West area of the forum) or leave it as it is.

Thank you

Light up, light up as if you have a choice,
Even if you cannot hear my voice.
I'll be right beside you dear.

Most of the earlier Versas have had new numbers reported, but I still have YJ57 XWE as 267. Has this been renumbered?
With other Versas renumbered, does thus mean we have 2x 202s, or has T127 OAH been sold/renumbered?

I know at least some of 1853-71 are being transferred to Harrogate, but even if all go that's only 19 outgoing with 30 incoming. Does that mean a number of other buses will also be cascaded/sold?
And of these B7RLEs, is 1865 still at Burnley and if so how long is expected to remain in service there?

267 was returned at end of lease earlier this year, and is now with Centrebus.
202 is technically now 1022, but is withdrawn, so probably won't ever carry it.
The new Versas have replaced all the B10BLEs and B7RLEs in Mainline livery. The B7s are being retained and refurbished for use elsewhere within the Group, whilst the B10s are being advertised for sale. Therefore 1865 is no longer in use at Burnley, awaiting its turn for refurbishment and reallocation.

Just checked my records and it looks like I forgot to delete 267 (YJ57 XWE) as I had made a pencil record of its transfer to Centrebus and properly recorded YJ57 XVN/U that transferred about the same time.

Had a trip to Burnley yesterday, noted all except 259. 273 was in service on a mainline working.

Transdev is running buses to Showbus on their VAMOOZ app. Departures from Harrogate, Leeds, Meadowhall, Burnley and Manchester. Prices start at £32.30 and go as low as £22.50 for a fully booked bus, including admission.

How does this work? Presumably, the first thing is you have be able to sign up to the "app". ie. you csan't travel otherwise. Further, I notice that the bit about booking the ticket comes *before* departure times are confirmed. That begs two questions:
1. Can you find out the approximate scheduled departure times , and exact locations, before booking? Ideally, before giving ANY information such as Card details, out?
2. If the schedule changes such that it becomes impossible to connect with the bus, can you cancel and not be charged?

Indeed, how does the pricing work? Is it similar to booking Airline tickets, in that the longer you leave it, the price goes up or there are no seats left?

I do fancy going to Showbus, but for medical reasons, wouldn't be able to commit until late August, and even with the move to Donnington Park, its not possible by conventional public transport, unless you take out a second mortgage for a hotel room!

Thanks. Pretty much illustrates my point; If the M'cr pick up had been Chorlton Street (at 0730...or later), I would have been confident about connecting from the first bus of the day. Mind you, with my meds regime, it would have meant a 04:45 alarm!
