2520 is on the 36 today, but the rest I'm unsure may be ready for service yet, unless 2520's machine is being used on another bus.

In terms of the Cadets that were flung further afield, notable disposals are of the erstwhile 2525, 2531 and the immaculately presented 2554 for scrap. It appears their usefulness at ASC was next to nil. A shame really, particularly in 2554's case after P&P.

That leaves 2532 as the only example left of the small batch transferred down there, indeed if it hasn't already departed.

EDIT:

2532 has also left Southend for scrap

2498's machine was last used in late-October at Speke, and according to some images from 2019 it did appear to be at Green Lane and Bootle (although 2495 had been apparently withdrawn for what I would assume being many months) and 2495 according to Bustimes is based at Bootle depot.

Though, I do wonder if 2495 was going to see service at Green Lane, but it did not come to fruition.

It wasn't. It was withdrawn at Southport after it was found to have a corroded axle

2482 as previously mentioned is now at St Helens being used for component recovery it would appear, ex Wrexham in store.

2498 was not used late-October at Speke, different bus logged into the ticket machine.

2542 is still parked up at Runcorn
