Thanks pal I had a look but I didn't find them when I was there sadly

Not sure if you checked the depot yard, one perhaps could have been spare or in the workshop, good excuse for you to come back Smile

With the 113, 114, 115,116 & 297 being relocated to Telford are any vehicles being transferred from Shrewsbury to cope with the extra PVR

If I head to Cannock where is the best place to find the 3 North West ordered Cadets (2740-2742) and the ex North West Pulsar? (3805)

From experience the Cadets could end up on a variety of routes, including some out of sight over in Stafford but those are more likely to produce Darts.

I suggest a wait at Cannock Bus Station should allow you to see them on the likes of the 60/61/62/63 as likely routes but also watch the 25/26 and 70. The odd turn on the 74/75 if your lucky but these are typically B7RLEs with the odd Pulsar. A note is the 10 Wolverhamton - Perton shorts I believe are worked off the end of the 70 these days so may be more favorable to find Cadets appearing on the 70/10 than previously.

3805 I suggest looking on the 25/26/70/74/75 but be prepared to get frustated by those B7RLE things!

The 3 from Cannock to Walsall is a regular route for Cadets, and one day last week one of this batch was on Stafford town service 9, Cannock depot run most of the Stafford town services except the 6 run by Telford. Seem to recall seeing 2805 in Stafford as well at least one day this week but can't recall if it was on the 74 or 825.
