Bloody hell! Wonders will never cease regarding 40349. Surely this and the rest of the batch will be withdrawn soon considering their age?

I know, wonders will never cease, looks like its got new wheels on, and they've given it a little spruce up lol. But those darts are so old now, im asking myself was it worth it. To first manchester it obviously wasWink

I'm sure I saw 40358 in the workshop yesterday looking very shiny as well. Keep your eye out for it. May have had a full repaint.

Come to think of it that explains a lot, I've not seen 40358 for a few weeks, normally a regular on the withins and great lever circulars.Think they did a similar thing with 40342 that also wasn't seen for weeks.Then came back with a paint job, mind you it did need it.

There still seems to be very gradual de branding of Bolton B9s off of the 36 and 37s in particular 37424 and 37426. In addition the route names have gone from the windows on some buses, and of course them stupid snowflakes.Good riddance

I have it on good authority that at least one or maybe more Enviro 400s are currently at Oldham Depot at the moment for type training for the drivers who are going to Olympics
