I have intentions to attach a spreadsheet in the future, but I'm not sure if I will go ahead with it.
2552 is withdrawn I think, 2533 hasn’t been used since February

2533 hasn’t seen use at Rhyl at all, it came in December and has been off the road the whole time.

2514, 2533 and 2552 are good contenders for being used for spares to be honest, no point in using them now.

Appears 2546 has been reinstated at Winsford, I’m well aware bustimes isn’t always 100% accurate however out of curiosity I MOT checked it on the DVLA website and it was shown to have been MOTd on the 3rd of August, so it could well be correct in this case.

I did notice it on the 31A yesterday when I was on 2549.

2546 is back on the road as it was on the 84s last Sunday

As the list above shows its Scrapped, Can we also keep Bus Times talk to a minimum as its not a bible and does often have incorrect tracking data for a number of reasons.

New fleet list to show the Withdrawal of Birkenhead's Cadets and recent additions to Birkenhead and elsewhere.
EDIT: some more info on the Cadets from now...
