Notes: It is believed that some of the remaining MAN 18.220LF/Alexander ALX300s will become part of the Driver Training Department across the South East, including 22942 OU51WLK and 22944 OU51WLN from Ashford which were not so long ago withdrawn. It is believed these may see out all remaining Volvo B10M Training Coaches.
It has also been announced that the South East are to receive a brand new batch of Scania N250UD/ADL Enviro 400 MMC buses, which we believe may be for the Wave 99 between Hastings and Eastbourne. It has been rumoured that the GN61 Scania buses currently on the route may be transferred to Eastbourne for their Loop services.
It is also believed Ashford may getting rid of all of their Dennis Trident vehicles to other divisions or depots within the South East – replacing them with newer buses. One Trident is rumoured to be going to Eastbourne.
