53155 (CN06 BXH) ex PMT is currently sat at Padmore Street, receiving attention. I have been told that this is the Solo we are expecting, along with 11 Citaros.

Fantastic! Does this mean that 53061 or 53062 could be Withdrawn once 53155 enters service? :?

Also, any more news on the Citaro's (Sorry - I'm very eager to find out! :lol: )

I think that is the one that was gutted in a fire a few years back and then rebuilt over about two years.

It looks like 53155 is a replacement for 53061 or 2. The extra Solo will be arriving next week and it is coming from Manchester

Thanks bmmoboy :D

53062 has not been out since 7th August according to bus times so maybe that is suffering engine problems which would suggest it will be the first to be withdrawn & replaced by 53155.

Will the extra Solo from Manchester act as additional vehicle/spare or will it also replace the other remaining solo? (53061 or 53062 - depending on which one is left)
