I was more giving a tonge in cheek reply to the usual stuff I read on here lol. Not sure what's going on with them, TfGM are a strange machine!

Maybe First Group went in that low to win the busway they want them to sick with the busway. Or Tfgm are happy with First. I have to say the buses are in good nick for 5 years they have been looked after.

I'm surprised they still go into electric mode. It seems the newer B5LH chassis on the Gemini 3 is a bit more reliable than the older one used with Gemini 2 bodywork.

Ive always thought the Euro 6 B5LH is better than the Euro5 dont think the build quality was good on the Gemini 2 B5LHs as the B9TL based Geminis as well quite rattly.

I wonder what will happen to the current Vantage buses? Maybe they'll end up being repainted into current First livery and end up replacing some of the older Geminis or Enviro300s at Oldham Depot.

They would Goto Leeds or Bradford unless the new buses need busway kit off the buses

I thought TfGM owned the Gemini 3s are they actually owned by First Group then?

Pretty sure that Oldham Depot owns them currently, previously Bolton.

I believe that was the plan.
