Bank Holiday Weekend Odd Workings

411 on the sports shuttle for YMCA 24 May

Bank Holidays sometimes spring surprises. Perhaps the biggest this year was the appearance of most - if not all - of 411-417 in use. These are normally restricted to Schools services but they were used on a special shuttle from Pontins to the YMCA on Mythop Road, Lytham for a football competition on Saturday and Sunday. 411, 413, 414 and 416 were all seen on Sunday and it is believed others may also have appeared.

Today (Monday) saw 317 make a rare appearance on Line 1. Pool Tridents normally cover for branded ones on the 11 and 14, however with a reduced PVR on Bank Holidays 317 could be spared for Line 1.
