So far this month we have seen a few more changes to the East Sussex fleets. Firstly, some sad news to bring that Eastbourne’s last Step Entrance bus, 16370 N370LPN, has been withdrawn from service, replaced by former London Trident 17528 LX51FOM, which has recently entered service.
Other news includes that 17106 V106MEV has been towed to Eastbourne for storage and is now in the Reserve fleet, as it requires a new engine.
Staying with Tridents, it is reported that more MagicBus cascades have arrived at East Kent, the identities are unknown at this time, however it is most likely that Hastings will recieve on of these cascades in replacement for 17106, in favour of spening a whole load of cash trying to repair it, which, lets be honest, probably won’t work!
Finally, B10M’s 20647 and 20675 (R647HCD and R675HCD) are now officially in the Reserve fleet, but are still in use at the current time due to a vehicle shortage.
