#1
Looks like Arriva have purchased some more MAN Ecocities with OW17 WNB being the first to be registered - https://www.flickr.com/photos/128789124@...otostream/

Does anyone have full details of the Arriva Order for this financial year, as bits and pieces have been put into other threads.

Assuming no unannounced orders for later in gthe year, the only B5LHs are 4693-7 new to (iirc) Speke, a few months ago.

Macclesfield is officially an outstation of Winsford, so officially the Sprinters are all WF. But in practice, you are probably right regarding where they are actually deployed for now.
