  1. Hi,

    Just so that you know – 503 hasn’t been transferred to Hexham because of the introduction of the 689 as this is operated by Stanley depot usually with an S-reg SPD

    • Hi, thanks for the information, i didnt realize the 689 was Stanley operated. Seems a bit strange having a Tynedale Links branded service without a branded vehicle to go on it!

  2. 503 has been transfered to Hexham

    • That is correct Thomas, it is shown in the post.


  3. I know but Gary said it hadn’t

    • Hi,
      Gary is correctly saying service 689 is worked by Stanley depot but MPD 503 is at Hexham.
