2546 went to Telford a month ago as a repaint cover bus to replace 2744 which ended up been withdrawn due to engine issues at Oswestry and his now sat withdrawn, awaiting to be towed away.

2945 return to Oswestry by mid March and didn't re-enter use until around 29th March when it was eased back into use on the 405 School Service, it has since resumed front line use been on the 70/70A Friday and 2A/2C/2A focused cycles on Wrexham's on Saturday.

Thanks for the update mate I will head down to Oswestry one day next week to hopefully find 2945 & 3756 to finish off the fleet providing no other vehicles have turned up

3756 if in use on the day should be on a 2/2C/2 or 2A/2C/2A cycle, could be a wait to find it, unless you start at the Wrexham.

2945 I suggest checking the 70/70A as typically x2 Scanias and x2 Versas allocated, failing that the 576. Slim chance been half term it could appear on the 53.

My plan is to start at Wrexham just in case they are on the 2Cs

2506 never saw service at Oswestry, it was there for MoT work only after it departed Derby, prior to reallocation Shrewsbury where it has been in service over a month now.
