One of the East Lancs Tridents has left the yard at Lynn, it could have been swapped with an ALX400

It was 18278 which left the yard at King's Lynn and went to Cambridge via Peterborough. I understand this vehicle will be leaving the fleet imminently.

The two Solo SRs that remained at King's Lynn depot, 48021/22, have transferred to Stagecoach West Scotland and are reported as being at Kilmarnock pending service preparation and allocation.

Is it leaving Stagecoach altogether or going elsewhere in the fleet

I believe its the second one that recently got painted into corporate colours, the other one 18280 that was refurbished in 2016/2017 is still in Kings Lynn, will this be going with 18278

Does anyone know what vehicles are still stored at Kings Lynn and where they're likely to be going in the future?

Without a definite list, it's safe to say that all the Mark 1 Solos are there along with the Optare Tempos and Versas

In terms of ADLs the two stagecoach NG varient ALX400s are there along with the apple green ALX400, also stagecoach coloured ALX400s 2002 models

Not forgetting one of the East Lancs 18280

Just been looking at this site, entered a few numbers of the old KL like Mark 1 Solos, Tempos and both the East Lancs Tridents and they are not showing in service

On April 29th they were all still in reserve at Kings Lynn, so I would assume that they have all been withdrawn and now dumped in Hamlin Way waiting to be sold on

Perhaps someone would know if there is another website which shows if they have been delicenced with the relevant authorities

Just had a drive round Hamlin Way, still no sign of movement on the scrapped buses, beensitting idle for two months now and would of thought Stagecoach would have shifted them to Ensign got a big lump sum cash then they can release the two yards assuming they can leave Hamlin Way when they want

Two months is nothing for Stagecoach. The remains of fire damaged Trident 18105 (KX04RFF) are still at Northampton more than 2 years after it was withdrawn

Broken MAN's are also still at Bedford months after withdrawl now joined by Darts that look to be being stripped for spares

One of the Solos was on the move today, going towards Littleport on the A10, last bit of number plate EZZ

That would be 47909 (YJ09EZZ).
These would be useful to get rid of older Solos in Kettering

I have it, on good authority, that some of the better conditioned 479xx solos will be going up North, possibly to Cumbria or Scotland, to another Stagecoach Company.

18105   KX04 RFF   Dennis Trident      Destroyed by fire -  to be retained - PSV Claims.....This is the Official line regarding 18105..but I have never been able to find out the reasoning behind it, from PSV Claims ?

Is it possible it's there for component recovery, I believe Cambridge has two Solos one for Cambridge the other for Newmarket

Cambridge doesn't have any Solo's. The only Stagecoach East depot allocated Solo's is Bedford

possible use on service 8/10.
the new solos seem to be too big for these routes
this makes Bedford with 3 surplus solo SRs.
