Excel - over and out?

A last view of Excel 225 in service waiting time at Poulton Church on the 1835 Knott End to Blackpool (Shaun Courtnage with permission)
Excel 225 is now understood to be withdrawn following today's service changes. Its last full day was Friday when it worked route 7. Saturday was spent as spare bus but it was called upon to act as a changeover and left depot to work the 1720 2C from Blackpool to Knott End and the 1835 Knott End to Blackpool from where it returned to depot around 2000.
