I agree with everything that you have written and would like to think that, given the reduced frequency of the 52/52A at the weekend and especially Sunday, the new deckers will also be used as a matter of course on the 53 and 55. Does anybody know what the PVR for the 52/52A is on a Sunday? My guess is six and that means ten will be left sitting in the depot.

You're right Barney that the 52/52A requires six buses on a Sunday, so with ten spares they will surely see some use elsewhere on Sundays.

With the Bootle - Aigburth routes, on weekdays I would definitely claim that the 60 needs a full allocation of double deckers as peak time runs are very busy - and it isn't just schoolkids. The 61, however, only seems to have a select number of journeys which actually justify the double deckers, so there is less of a reason for a majority decker allocation here in my experience. As said though, weekends are a very different story and the current Enviro400s are being badly wasted on weekends.
