Arriva North West - Bootle Depot
RE: Arriva North West - Bootle Depot
Two Darts were out on the 52 today - 2233 and a tired looking 7662. 4094 was on the 55 while the remainder of the DLAs were shared between the 56 and 59/61.

Had a ride on 4094 which, as MPTE mentioned, is certainly a sluggish example. Unfortunately, it also suffers from a fair bit of crashing about, especially upstairs. For me, Bootle's worst DLA although it does at least look nice and tidy as an example which has undergone P&P. Had my seemingly guaranteed ride on the ever present 4089 as well, and here the heating issue has been fixed. This seemed a lot better than last time out, moving well and running smoothly. Still a damaged seat back to sort upstairs, however. Another decent Bootle DLA is 4064, fairly run of the mill in terms of speed but presentable and smooth.

"So far, so good; so close, yet still so far."
