I was hoping to catch one if these on the 60 or 61 on my way home tonight but didn't see any whilst on the 60 and 4432. Incidentially 4432 has a crack in the upstairs front screen.
I thought that I was dreaming yesterday morning when I seen 4424 on the 311 passing through Old Roan at 06:38 for Skelmersdale, having just started in Walton (so on there from the start)! I had super-fast 4418 on my 311 from Skelmersdale to Liverpool this evening! Lovely bus to ride on. Love its high-pitched squeals at high revs, although they didn't do it as much as it did at Birkenhead. Ride-quality-wise, it was alright, although the damn destination area panel wouldn't stop rattling (I sat on the top deck as I hadn't rode on a 'decker on the 311 around Skelmersdale since Bootle first got the service). I was shocked to pass 4428 in Aintree en-route to Skem, though - on the same board as 4424 was on yesterday! The extra capacity is desired on peak-hour journeys, especially when the schools are open en-route.

Abnormalities on the 52/52A today were DAF/ALX400 4095 and Marshall 7649 - the latter may even be on a late board...!
