Stotts step dart M406 HFP passed through Netherton at about 10:10 this morning heading towards Meltham, doing a school swimming bus I would imagine. And one from yesterday, I saw a TLC Accessbus Solo on the South Crosland route, not sure which one but it looked like a 64-plate one, one of the last buses bought new by K-Line when it was still called that!

Partly right, yes, it was an AccessBus Solo, but, not one of the 64 plate Solo SR's that transferred from Tiger, when TLC took over the contact. It's a 09 or 10 plate old style Solo, that's been refurbished to be a spare, across the depots, where needed. The 64 plate AccessBuses were bought new by Metro, not K-line/Tiger Blue as they were called, in 2015, when they took over AccessBus from Kirklees Council. Kirklees AccessBus, were until earlier this week, using an 09 Bradford AccessBus, while the stage carriage side, were using one of 64 plate Solo's on, am K185, 317, pm K185 & 1710 900, due to accident damage on other vehicles, across the group. Currently, 91247, is in use at either Bradford or Tod, Huddersfield ADL's 15236/7 are currently, also at Bradford, waiting for Warranty work to be carried out by ADL .
AY's Heckmondwike 1601 was used as a changeover of buses on the 268 to Wakefield - at Dewsbury this morning. Presumably the Enviro400 had a problem.. At Wakefield I feel sure I saw 1412 running late on the 189 to Castleford this morning and 1407 on the 187, but I have noted on another topic that 1412 has moved to Selby and read elsewhere that 1407 is no longer in the fleet. Clarification would be welcome.

You probably did Guyarab, I saw it in Leeds later on a Cas service. 1411 also back in Castleford yesterday (if it ever went to Selby) with Selby Dart 262 both running round on service with 'Arriva Yorkshire' as a destination
Unusual sightings today were hybrid 1709 on the 111 Pinderfields shuttle and double decker 1805 on the 103 to Stanley which is usually only a mini enviro both around 13:55 then Sapphire 1934 outside Leeds rail station around 1420 on a 444 to Leeds
UID East Lancs Cityzen Scania spotted in red livery and yellow markings spotted near White Rose Centre. Does this bus belong to CT Plus as the markings are pretty similar.
Its a Kidzone party bus . Those who can remember a boy called Joshua who was made famous all over Leeds for his visit to the First depot over a driver who gave him his tie. It was his birthday party today and his parents hired out this party bus for him who lives near Middleton area which is why u saw it Michael.
