Also, 2729 is running a Dart duty on the 37/38 this afternoon/evening having replaced ALX200 Dart 2274.

I think there was quite a few vehicles on the 37/8 yesterday as I'm sure that 2273 made an appearance for a while too. I'm also sure that there was a interurban b10ble on the 356 working too?

I confirmed this last Monday mate when it re-entered service on the 10A :-)

I also had it then on Thursday night on a late 89 and as you say, it's excellent. I did pick up on some slight rattles from the panelling above the windows toward the rear however. One other thing noteworthy is that it's been completely re-upholstered and the paint looks very fresh - I would assume therefore that this is why it visited Yorkshire? Says something about the condition it must have returned in though that it's had to be fully re-upholstered.

Would make more sense I suppose! Just hold out for 2489 or 2495 mate ;-)

I wonder if this is why 2993 needed some serious attention? It looks like it's been NFS since last November, as that's the last photo of it.

Justice is finally here. Rest In Peace the 96, You'll Never Walk Alone.

Consume a hell of a lot more fuel than a Cadet though!

I know 2273 was on there from at least around 10am when I saw it in St Helens but if it replaced something, I don't know what! Cadet 2492 was on the 356 working all day so it may have been this you saw as it is in Interurban?

Yeah it must have been 2492. I only seen it from a distance and it looked too long to be a cadet so I assumed it was a b10ble! Evidently it wasn't! lol.

Re: the remaining Paladins, I have eleven listed as still in service: 1042/4/8/50-5/7/8, but I have not seen 1052 at all on my last few visits to St. Helens and I don't remember any sightings being mentioned of it. Is this one still in use?

I would expect all the remaining Paladins to be withdrawn around the same time in the next 3 weeks or so once the Versa's start arriving.

Thanks!
