|216 is the only Cadet left in the fleet not earmarked for withdrawal|
A regular correspondent has been in touch with a number of fleet updates from Sanders. On the bus side, as anticipated, the two outstanding VDL Wright Pulsars will be numbered 103/4 so that apart from 116, the deckers are more or less split between Scanias numbered 113 to 122, and everything else 101-111.
With regards to the single-deck fleet, 203 YJ03PKY is still on the road at the moment, but withdrawal is imminent .I am unsure about which DAFs are in use and which aren't, but by the time withdrawals are complete there will only be 216 HE51BUS of the DAF SB120's left.
The existing Wright Pulsar bodied VDL SB200 types are renumbered from 226-30 to 403-7 with the two former Fishwick buses YH63 CXE/F numbered 401/2. Of these, 402 is yet to arrive.
Bova BT08LCT is numbered 805 (the same as former Bova CT05LCT) and will be given cherished registration YVJ677 from P55TCC which has regained its old number. Van Hool 908 536FN has reverted back to registration WK06AEC. New arrivals YU05 ZKL/V are numbered 1011/2.
