Arriva Durham Update 23/08/12

First of all Prestige 4062 S704 KFT has finally returned to service with new standard flooring and standard cream handrails but still in old livery. Unusually it still does not wear a front Arriva logo. Here it is seen on the 64:

Optare Solo 2805 YK08 ERY has surprisingly appeared in the new standard livery and is seen in a very blurry shot exiting Durham Bus Station on the 48.

Dennis Dart SLF / Alexander ALX200’s Y258/259 KNB have been sent to Jesmond to get new panels fitted and painted into new standard livery and now see work at Blyth depot moving away from life at Durham onto less clam work.

Dennis Dart SLF / Plaxton Pointer 1301 X475 GGO has moved to Darlington and 1306 X526 GGO, 1311 X533 GGO, 1314 X537 GGO and 1315 X538 GGO all now see use at Durham depot.

Pulsar 1467 NK61 CXY now has a left yellow mirror handle making it stand out from the crowd.

Two odd workings recorded from Saturday were R641 MNU on the 64 making a pretty rare appearance in service and Lowlander 7442 on the 7. R641 MNU was also on loan to Darlington depot on the 21st due to a football match.

Also, MPD 1722 is currently on loan to Jesmond depot covering for a fire damaged refurbished Volvo B10BLE / Wright Renown.



  1. i thought that the x527/6 ggo buses came here too…..

    • To Phillip,
