Yes when I was down that way last week Enviro 400s were on the 46 and 56.
Enviro 400 MMCs still appear on the 505 - the route getting a lot of flak because of gaps in the timetabled service.

No other operator has registered the route as yet but the authorities through which the route passes will be aware of the withdrawal as under the new regulations a new route/change/cancellation has to submitted to them 28 days before the TCs.

The understanding is that funding had been agreed until later in the year so there must be a new operator ready unless the funding situation has changed.

A new operator would probably be able to register the route under the Short Notice method.

No the Long Sutton operation is still on the Go West Travel Limited licence, just that there are a large number of Peterborough vehicles working out of Long Sutton

Does anyone know where Dart 34420 (the former King's Lynn CPC Trainer) is? I am not aware that it is one of the vehicles still at the former King's Lynn depot. Many Thanks

I don't believe it is at Hamlin Way, if memory serves me correct a few days after the closure of the Lynn operation I thought I see it in the yard at Long Sutton

Made a point of visiting/ observing Welbourns Wisbech yard to see if that Dart was still there.

Although yard was securely locked, breakdown vehicles still there, servicing bays obviously in use, no Dart present BUT 2 sorry looking Stagecoach E400s at bottom of the yard - unfortunately some 200 yds from the gate .

Put this here but Cambridge/Pboro/ March correspondents got any currently missing?

I would have thought they would be Long Sutton or Peterborough vehicles which have broken down on the 505 and been recovered, unless Welbourns are doing the servicing and maintenance for Long Sutton fleet

Perhaps the dart is or was the one Steve Knight was looking for
