Arriva North West - Birkenhead Depot
RE: Arriva North West - Birkenhead Depot
It seems that most depots go through a cycle of being short on the normal vehicles used on the routes , an odd single decker mingled in with double deckers will be ok , but you wouldnt want a few of them in a row , now that passengers are used to the double deckers that will start up some complaints.

That's how it goes if there's no deckers available. Surely a single decker is better than no bus at all?

A single decker is ok as i said intermingled in a high frequency service like the 437 with double deckers , but put a few of them on that service in a row and you will stir up a hornets nest , probably also will cause a few issues on the New Brighton - Liverpool 432 and 433 service it inter works with .

The 437 and 432/3 are probably the best of bad lot if they are short of Double Deckers.

With the Stagecoach Gold Double Decker vehicles on the 471/2 its not good publicly to have Arriva single deckers now on the 471/2

Again if there aren't any deckers available and a "row" of single deckers is used to make up the allocation then it's better than nothing at all

Ideally there should be spare single and double deckers available but that isn't always possible

RE: Arriva North West - Birkenhead Depot
A post a few of you may have been waiting for. The following buses are stored in Laird street - 4200 / 4201 / 4202 / 4203 / 4205 / 4206 / 4207 / 4208 / 4166 (in use) / 4172 / 4173 (in use) / 4175 / 4179 / 4181 / 2465 / 2470 / 2473 / 2705 / 2713 / 2723 / 2803.

We all know that 4204 is also here still in service. 2460 (christmas Myllennium) is also still here.

4201 / 4202 / 4206 / 4208 look to be leaving for scrap very soon.
