Do you know if GNE's streetlites will follow this pattern?

Huh

With thanks to the Arriva North West Facebook page, it has been confirmed that in addition to the 35 Alexander Dennis Enviro400s for Green Lane's 12/13 and 15 routes, Speke will be receiving 12 for the 75 service and Birkenhead 6 to replace older deckers on various routes. These buses are due towards the end of the summer I believe.

Bootle's other Enviro400s are registered as follows: SL15LME/LMF/LMJ/LMK/LML/LMM/LMN/LMO/LMU/LMV/LMY/LNA/LNC/LND/LNE.

Also, the Streetlite order for Birkenhead is untrue and can be removed from the list.

Non for Ashington. Lots for Blyth?

Would imagine that within the next few years there'll be a big order for Ashington and Blyth (and other depots) to replace the Darts. Think I remember asking about them a few months back, and Tyresmoke said they had lower book values than some Cadets?

Ashington received 12x E400s and 3x Hybrid Streetlites last year though? 

On top of that, another 7x E400s upgraded to MAX spec, and another 10x E400s upgraded to Sapphire spec.

Look at Blyth, quite a modern fleet. However in Ashington, we have quite an aged fleet. Mostly London cast offs replacing London cast offs.

Wouldn't say Ashington has an aged fleet? 
12 14/64 reg E400's 
8 09 reg E400's 
12 57 reg E400's 
3 64 reg Streetlites
2 05 reg Omnicities
5? 05/55/56 reg Darts


The rest, granted is more than 10 years old but they're hardly used on very profitable services, and mainly as spares?

You surely can't expect Arriva to fork out hundreds of thousands of pounds for spare vehicles and use on the 34 for example? 


RE: Arriva 2015 Order - Adrian - 07/03/2015

Interestingly, the fleet ages of each depot are very similar. Discounting anything for disposal that is.

Ashington = 2008
Belmont = 2007
Blyth = 2008
Darlington = 2008
Jesmond = 2007
Redcar = 2008
Stockton = 2007
Whitby = 2009

I'm positive that, if you went back to even 2012, those averages for some depots would be far older than that (older than 2004/5), I think that Arriva really need to be credited for the recent investment.
