Take the P&P'd ones if you wish, we'll keep hold of the much scruffier Pulsars that go like the proverbial off a shovel! Wink
As I said before, I think it should be the Cadets on the move to somewhere like St Helens as routes like the 32s and 33s here are perfectly suited for such sized vehicles whilst Runcorn could better utilise Pulsars on services such as the 79C.

I feel I should add that this is all on the assumption that the ex-Wythenshawe Pulsars do indeed move on when Runcorn receive this new, high specification batch of their own.

The first X1 Pulsar has now arrived in Runcorn depot, 3136 was picked up from Manchester today. They're basically the same spec as the Cymru Coastliner Geminis, with leather seats and Wi-fi. They will be fitted with branding before entry to service in late July.

Justice is finally here. Rest In Peace the 96, You'll Never Walk Alone.

A month... Quite a period of sitting doing nothing!

Great news that they are almost here! Can't wait to ride on one. I'd imagine Runcorns will be the first 12 plate Pulsars to enter service seeing as the others are apparently going to the Olympics!

That's brilliant news! I reckon on riding one early next year, on the same day as a Hybrid single-decker on the Runcorn Busway and a Hybrid double-decker on a Liverpool-Wirral service.

I fail to see how stupid it is! Considering that the service only requires four buses, five buses should be sufficient enough.
