RE: First Manchester
Not to sure how true this is but I did hear from a friend of mine at First Manchester recently that apart from the Guided Busway ones most of the B7s at Oldham Depot have now been withdrawn and indeed have left Oldham Depot fort Scotland.

Also a couple of Streetlites were seen in Oldham Depot recently but these were merely passing through on their way upto Scotland.

It is a shame they were the best Oldham had in my opinion, presumably Oldham won’t see any new busses from this point on. I think soon we’ll see the start of the winding down of the depot completely as buses get old.

Give it 12 months and I bet all of the remaining B7RLEs from that batch will have ether been withdrawn or left Manchester it’s a shame to see them go as they’ve been good buses just getting old now.

In answer to my own question it's been reported on another forum that at least some of Oldham's B9TLs are being swapped with Enviro400s from South Yorkshire

TFGM also removed the 181 from the Chadderton to manchester stops as well so they will need to be reinstated on the flags rapid
