A massive overhaul of timetables occurred earlier this month with routes being cut, others going completely and new routes have been created with various route extensions. The route extensions of the 5 and 5A happened replacing what was part of route 55 with a more frequent weekday service to areas that were served by the 55. Another route created was the 6 which replaced route 56 retaining the 56s routing just under a different number. The 5/5A is mainly operated by E200s with a few E300s appearing as well also with a booked E400 working of the route.
Here are some 5As featured:
The first extended 5A I photographed was worked by E300 27578 here it is leading a group of E300s.
