2669 is still quite fast despite being in safe mode. 2955 was far from in safe mode last time I rode it, full kickdown at some points!

Add 2670 to that list as well, candidate for the worst Pulsar i've ever ridden.

Seen this yesterday in Liverpool ONE Bus Station on The Belt (26/27) - it must have stayed on gear one from the traffic lights all the way to the turning point at the other side!

(03/06/2012 13:05)27701 in the "Arriva North West - Bootle Depot" thread Wrote:  Also, the 68 will be transferring to Green Lane soon as a result of the ex-Liverline facility's closure once the lease for it expires later on in the year. I'm unsure on what'll be sent there for the service, however I suspect that the remaining T-PNB Plaxton Pointer 2s and X-OBN ALX200s will be candidates, along with Bootle's two oldest buses - Plaxton Pointer R604 MHN (2104) and Plaxton Pointer 2 R569 ABA (7569). The 62/62A/62B MIGHT follow suit - or it might even become jointly-operated, with Bootle operating the Crosby journeys and Green Lane operating the Bootle journeys - if space conditions are still an issue inside the main depot after the 68 has transferred.

Green Lane doesnt have that much of an old fleet, think of the number of Pulsars it has.

Nothing has been withdrawn at Green Lane since 5320 in April. On the contrary Green Lane is one of the "newer" garages with an average age of 6.5.
