There's a few solos arrived here of late... 20726/883/885/918 and 20016 is still outstanding. Unsure if 20726/918 are allocated or just loans though. 20885 hasn't been in service yet though due to engine issues.

I would assume 20726 is a loan as it’s a Cummins Solo and I don’t think there are any others at Preston.

According to the press release they are meant to have some new. Some of the Gemini’s which were meant to come off lease are reported to have been purchased

Preston are getting 4 x Streetdecks, theirs will arrive first before DBNW's for Bolton. They were intending to have 8, however, the 4 x 62 plate B5LH that were due to return off lease have since been purchased & thus 4 extra have been diverted to Bolton.

I assume the 4 that are coming are replacing the Tridents unless the 13 Plate B5LHs are on lease too.

No, the 4 x 13 Plate B5LH are due to return off lease unless a deal is done to buy them in the meantime. They are leased from different lessors to the 62 plate batch as well.

It's worth noting 20885 is familiar to most of us as the former S1 EMS.

I wouldn’t be surprised if these end up being bought as well with the 4 StreetDecks going to Bolton
