Depends on their height as there's low bridges around the Deeside area.

I reckon it's more likely to be a Cadet or Commander, but only time will tell I guess.

Also the back line of scrap vehicles are now slowly being taken away. That will allow more space in the depot for more buses should Chester get more routes in the future. What's interesting is that Chester was used as the scrap base for buses from different depots in north west and wales. I took some photos on my break last week and if allowed i'll upload them to show you what was there. Some of which won't be there now of course.

I would recommend an Enviro 400 , 13'10 vehicles they are, the Volvo ALX400's from Merseyside i think are 14'4 or 14'5 so cant fit through the bridge in Shotton.

I forgot about the bridge at Shotton I thought they were 14'3 and Geminis on the 11 just fit under it it’s possible an Enviro400 could turn up

It'll be whatever's available and suitable for the route(s) it'll be used on

North West don't have any spare Enviro400s so we'll just have to wait and see what it is

I think the Volvo's might be 14'4 or 14'5, possibly 14'3 but idk, i've seen a Trident School Bus ALX400 with Townlynx just get under and that was 14'3 tall, so yeah.

I think 852 is still at Chester, seen a Dart facing forwards towards the side of 8260 and 2555 on Tom's flickr, unless that was the dart that was taken away.
