Stays of Execution

The demise of the Night Bus service 27 last weekend has proven short-lived as it resumed on Thursday. It is understood to be a temporary measure as the service registration cancellation has been granted to take effect on 6 May.

Also reported reprieved is former Fylde and Blackpool Excel 208 (N208LCK). This has been with Stagecoach Yorkshire in Chesterfield as 35017 for some time and had cheated withdrawal last year when sister 207 was sold. It appeared on the company's allocation sheets for the four weeks to April 2 as transferred to 'Disposal' which signifies its availability for sale. It has been suggested though that 35017 is to remain in use with another vehicle withdrawn instead.
