seems a bit strange to have them down there and not be mot'd and used.

What Centros have been having the issues I still need 2611,2612 & 2617. Also I think the Centros could be added on to this since they are also SB120s like the Cadets

I can't see 55-reg Cadets being withdrawn from service when there's a number of older vehicles of the same type in Arriva Southern Counties' fleet

If it's any help 2612 was in Macc yesterday.

2614 has left winsford & I've not seen 2608/2609 in ages. 1 recently caught fire that I think was 2613.

Centros aren't the most reliable buses in the fleet as it is. They've given winsford a whole load of trouble over the years.

Just been informed 2480 and 2482 are Withdrawn as well

2614 is in St Helens and 2608 is in Southport I think, 2609 left for Telford earlier in the year after it was swapped with their Centro SB200 3728 after a fatal accident its currently in Birkenhead (numbered as 3180 in the North West fleet with 2608 being numbered 2768 in the Midlands fleet.)

I can confirm 2526 and 2629 are still at Green Lane
