I'm quite astonished at how many E400s have been ordered.
Hopefully Newcastle and Hartlepool get them this year.

Newcastle needs both E400s and long E200s

And Hartlepool needs 10.8m E200s

EDIT I understand the models are MMCs

It'll be because of the upcoming double decker DDA deadline.

Yep, So most will probably be aimed at Devon and the South East and west, Where there's still a lot of Olympians and early Tridents around I believe.

Though Newcastle have a Decker shortage and some MAN Routes could do with double deckers, And Hartlepool has elderly Darts to replace.

I'm surprised London aren't getting most of the order.... they normally get more than anyone else.

Wouldnt mind some E400MMCs on the 62/63 & X63, otherwise I think the 1 & 38 would likely candidates for new deckers.

It would be nice for the Killingworth buses to have the new Enviro 400s because 19379-89 were originally for the 38. 430-446 for the 1, 670-83 for 12 and of course hybrids on 39/40. I think Slatyford should get them. The 400s  on there are from 2007.
