DKD must have moved today as I saw it last night on the 32A I didn’t think our Cadets were leaving yet

i think you mean 83A not 38. 38 is a Stagecoach route

Also meant to say 2548 also at Birkenhead

2516 is back in service at Bootle seeing as all the Pool Cadets are back in service is 2543 likely to return to service too?

The reason why I think these Cadets will be around for several more years is because, outside of London, Arriva has a moratorium on fleet replacement. Refurbishing, repainting and re-engineering a Cadet is a lot cheaper than buying a new Streetlite or Enviro200 MMC.

Even in London Arriva are having a break from new vehicles. This may be circumstantial with no new route tenders requiring new buses.
