From what I've seen many of the Darts have been out.

R551 ABA on the 409 today.
R554 ABA on the 411 on the 29th May.
R557 ABA on the 409 on the 29th May.
T314 PNC on the 411 on the 29th May.
R556 ABA was also on the 411 yesterday but escaped my camera.

Also seen out and about of notable interest,
X424 AJA on the 403/413/423 on the 29th May.

RE: Arriva North West- Birkenhead Depot
thanks- no sign of the Marshalls though. I know one was out on Saturday, but didn't get a ride. Contemplating if it will be possible to get a last ride on an R-ABA or a Marshall this weekend.

Can't wait for the darts to go, vile sheds. On another note which I couldnt post about, on saturday night DAF DB250 S281 JUA/4141 broke down on a 437 on Cook Street, mechanic on scene around 2130 , and 2404 failed on a 118/9 and got towed in at around 00:30.

I am no longer active on this forum.

I managed to ride 7642 on the 419 on Saturday, wasn't sounding it's best either, and the gearbox was making the bus jerk out and into each gear, wasn't a pleasant ride at all.

Such negativity! Can't say I'm a great fan, but as times change I want to take my last opportunity to ride Arriva Darts in the Wirral. And in any event as I said last week, imho I'll take a Dart over a Cadet any day.

RE: Arriva North West- Birkenhead Depot
We've been really lucky in the Wirral in recent years due to the diversity of buses at LS. But no more Palatines, no more Darts, Y-ABAs are going, Mylleniums are going - it's going to get a bit boring.
