A week of odd workings as well as the replacement for the Beach Bus

Who would of thought there would be so many Buses on odd workings in one week I was surprised with how many odd workings showed up. However, I was sadly unable to photograph them all which is a shame but I did manage to capture some. This post isn't just about odd workings as the Beach Bus and South Downs Bus which were regular performers on the Coaster have now been replaced by 2 Geminis in standard livery. 

Lets start with Single-Deckers: E300s 27580 (GX58 GKN) and 27582 (GX58 GKP) made appearances on the 56/5A/5 which are workings that are meant to be E200s during the holidays. 

Beast of a Bus the 56/5A/5 had a few appearances made by the GX58 batch of ADL E300s with one of 2 sighted appearances made. 27580 (GX58 GKN) is normally found on the 1/1A but took an outing on the 56/5A/5 a really odd working.

The second sighted appearance of a GX58 later on in the week was made by E300 27582 (GX58 GKP) known to me as the white moustache Bus it works a 5A.
 Meanwhile, it was interesting on the Double-Decker front with 09 plate Scanias appearing on the Wave 99 a route which is meant to be operated by Scania MMCs. This probably was due to the lack of MMCs available for the service 2 older Scanias appeared on it 15503 (GN09 BCY) and 15489 the latter still hasn't gone off for paint. 15503 is a loan to provide repaint cover for Hastings 09 reg Scanias. Another interesting thing was the fact that 3 Loop branded E400s appeared on the 1/1A the other day this led to 2 unbranded ADLs and one Scania E400 on the Loop. 19650/3/9 were on it in one day something in the way prevented me from getting photos of 2 of them. However, I did managed to capture one of them which is something. 
I've been trying to capture Eastbourne Scanias on loan to Hastings to provide repaint cover for their fleet of GN09s former Breeze 15503 (GN09 BCY) is seen on the Wave 99 covering for one of the MMCs another one was also on the service. 

It's a Loop on the 1 Loop branded E400 19653 (SP60 DPV) loads for its former service. 19650/9 were also on the service that particular day. 
 Elsewhere away from odd workings saw Brighton&Hove Geminis (Beach Bus 489 BJ63 UJT and South Downs Bus 490 BJ63 UJU) move homes so I will no longer be seeing them however, old 5 Geminis 477 (BJ63 UJE) and 478 (BJ63 UJF) replaced them. The good thing is that they are different Buses for me to photograph. 
Brighton&Hove Gemini 2 477 (BJ63 UJE) is seen on the 12A this replaced the Beach Bus.
