TfGM have said they will fund euro6 conversions so I imagine they'll take advantage of that with eligible vehicles.

Maybe they could give a (temporary exemption until 32 May 2023) like they done with coaches. As this would tie in with the first franchised buses starting to run in Bolton and Wigan in early 2023

If anyone knows if 40838 (and 40843 if it’s entered service) is out in service tomorrow it would be much appreciated it isn’t tracking and I require it

40838 is out and about and is 36/37 branded but tracking as something else I think in bustimes. 40829 is another that I think is tracking as something else too. Don’t think 40843 is in service yet.

Also think 66906 is the first of the B7s to be painted into the new trainer livery. Dave Leonard shared it on Twitter last week. Looks pretty good too.

I will have a look for it on the 36/37s I knew it was branded for them. I’m assuming enough StreetDecks are at Bolton to allow the remaining Euro 3 B7RLEs to be withdrawn

Looks like the inspiration for that come from Go North Wests 9003.....

Noted on Saturday was 40846 but carrying the registration allocated to 40843, is this just a numbering mistake or are there further vehicles to come.
Bus times lists 40846 but with incomplete registration.
Thanks Pete

I believe 40843-48 are the last ones due
