You are correct in your observation. This batch was bought to replace Pulsars on the 52/52A but within months of delivery they were to be found on the 60-63 routes and the Pulsars reverted to the 52/52A. The main reason for this is the fact that, apart from being busy routes for most of the day, the 60-63 also serve several large secondary schools along their routes.

In truth, the only solution to this issue is for Bootle to receive more double-deckers. It was reported a few months back that Bootle was to receive ten from Speke but so far this has not happened.
