And then there was one

A further product of the new Blackpool Transport network is the removal of the last two Metroriders from conventional service work. Solos are now allocated to Lines 10 and 15. 515's last Line 15 duty was on on Sunday 25 July and it then spent Monday acting as a route learning bus.

Line 10 livery 518 is now dedicated to the Department of Work and Pensions shuttle bus service from St. Annes (Moorland Road) to Peel Park offices. This half hourly shuttle runs Monday to Saturday and started in January 2008. It has previously used low floor Excels and more recently Solos. 518 has lost the route branding and now carries the standard BT logo.
