I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year Period.
I have some interesting news to bring to you all!
Dennis Trident 17623 V623DJA has been withdrawn from the Hastings Fleet due to DDA laws.
Dennis Tridents 17402 Y103GHC / 18292 AE51VFW are DDA compliant, although because of their age it is uncertain whether they will stay in service at Hastings.
The Hastings Depot have currently got Dennis Dart 34799 PX55EGJ on loan from the reserve fleet. After it leaves Hastings, it is due to be allocated to a Kent depot.
Dennis Darts 34792/34794/34799/34800 PX55EFY/EGC/EGJ/EGK have transferred from Manchester to the South East division. 34799 is temporarily at Hastings with 34800 already at Ashford Depot.
Hastings Depot have had an East Lancs LoLyne bodied Dennis Trident (an uncommon type with Stagecoach) 17699 MW52UJF transferred from Manchester as a permanent addition to the Hastings Fleet. 17699 was new to Cooper’s of Dunkinfield as DT5. As well as this, Hastings have had another quite, but not as uncommon type transferred as a permanent addition to the Hastings Fleet from Reserve, in the shape of Plaxton President bodied Dennis Trident 18291 MX03KZP which came down from Manchester a few weeks ago and was new to Mayne’s Coaches of Manchester. Both vehicles feature Free Wi-Fi.
Think that’s all.
