4700-5 are all now tracking on the 281-7 group of services.

4707-8 are still working in Macclesfield.

4706 hasn't tracked at all since it worked in Northwich on April 1st.

Now Arriva have the evening and Sunday 288, while Little Gem retain Mon-Sat daytime, are there any differences in the single fares depending on which operator is running the service at the time you travel?

Forgot to mention at the time, but on Wednesday afternoon I was surprised to see Pulsar 3101 pass my flat on the 285. It came back on the next 286.Of course, this is normally a Strada duty. I would imagine that getting a full sized saloon round the mini roundabout at the junction of Thorley Lane and Wood Lane was quite a tricky manoeuvre.

I'm guessing that won't be the first time, if the choice of vehicles at Wythenshawe are minibuses and full length ones, with nothing in between e.g. Solos.

And yet in other parts of the Arriva network, Solo's are on routes where their capacity is no longer suitable, I'm looking at you St Helens.

I think the risk works both ways. This time it was a Pulsar filling in for a Strada but if there's a shortage of usable Pulsars, then it'll be a Strada that's required to fill in. Didn't that actually happen on the 130 once when it still ran in to Manchester?

The 130 did see the Strata's midweek, but just on the last journey which only went as far as East Didsbury and that was cross linked off a Macc town service. However, in the last months of it running on Sundays, they were the normal allocation and reached Manchester all day. An odd sight in Oxford Road amongst all the busy Stagecoach Magic Buses.
