Numbered 13801-07 they are a 'beefed' up Lothian spec, also the first Stagecoach vehicles to  have white LED destination screens inc full-length rear.

I quite like that, shame that all of the open top routes are not going to be open top.

Which handbook is this? There are quite a few on the market - albeit some aren't single operator publications.

It's the British bus book publishing. Released every year and lists all upcoming orders for the year ahead (albeit sometimes parts of orders could be diverted)

So, is the North East receiving any new vehicles this year?

It's a case of wait and see....

What can be confirmed is the Streetlites - which are the full MAX version but are interestingly reportedly being numbered 39101-18 - are for Sheffield's Ecclesfield Depot for the 1 (High Green to Jordanthorpe via Chapeltown, Ecclesfield, Firth Park, City Cente and Hemsworth) which operates every 12 minutes, combining with the First-operated 1a (High Green to Heardings) to create a 6 minutes frequency betweem High Green and Hemsworth (although the two routes don't follow the same route around Ecclesfield - the 1 sticks to the main road and past the Stagecoach depot, the First 1a serves Ecclesfield Village itself).

The Caetano Levante are also confirmed as being for Chesterfield for their National Express work - the last remaining work with Stagecoach once the East Kent operation ceases.

It's confirmed that there are no new vehicles for busways or transit this year. Cascades only if any at all. Surprised by this as I thought Hartlepool may have seen some as it's 9 years since there last.

There was an extension to this year's order that was pending approval when the initial breakdown was leaked, so all might not be lost....
Putting new buses into Hartlepool would probably close the place!

I wonder what they could be for? All the existing trunk routes (run by MANs & E300s) have a PVR of 7 or more, whilst the locals are normally run by E200s. I suspect, it could be a trade off for a frequency cut (as happened at Middleton with 112/114) with the next lot of service changes (late July?)

All the detailed reports state Winchester, I think BBF have made a simple typo WN instead of WI.
