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
