Diversions, Enviro200s on the 51/251/252 and Doubles and Scania Enviro300s on the Loop.

Sometimes allocations can be out of the ordinary but when there is diversions involved, things get out of the ordinary every day of the week. That was the case last week there was a diversion on the 251/2 part of the Tunbridge Wells route resulting in Single Deckers which aren't to long on the 51/251/252. Doubles and Scania Enviro300s were banned from the 51/251/252 for a short period of time so did some Town work and the Scania Enviro300s worked the 54 as normal. The Doubles meanwhile, worked Town routes during last week.
Things are back to normal now as there is no diversion on the 251/2 which means the Doubles and Scania Enviro300s are back on the 51/251/252 and the Enviro200s are back on the Loop.

Rail Replacment and a Bus showing 40X blinds

The local Train company continue striking over the same thing that never gets sorted or goes wrong. Buses and Coaches replaced Trains between 2 Stations because of it over the 3 days it was on for earlier this week.

This was by far one of the worst Rail Replacements I've ever seen it was really boring nothing much really worth photographing other then a Seaford PVL originally with Go - Ahead London as their PVL233 (Y733 TGH) now re - registered as Y24 SEA with a fleet number of PVL24 which was originally on a V reg President with the same company. The Seaford and District fleet looks smart and impressive this is a company who look after their fleet really well and are popular with enthusiasts with photos of their fleet getting loads of Favourites.

Southern Transit Trident TA406 (Y517 NHK) also on Rail Replacement standby

Southern Transit TA1 (V301 KGW) at Hampden Park Station near to where I live

PVL24 showing 40X blinds the driver put these up
The 2 Tridents are ZF and TA1 is really loud well that's standard for Euro 2 Tridents. Also the last picture of the PVL has had some work done to it on my phone as it needed loads of cropping.

Some of last months odd workings

As I haven't written a post for a while I thought I might do a little post. There was loads of odd workings last month but my camera wasn't able to take photos of most of them so only managed a few. Referring back to my previous post on whether route branding works or not, it highlighted that the One branded E40Ds were off route a bit and branding doesn't work on them due to how many times they're off route they continued what they like doing best appearing off route. 
Enviro400 19668 (SP60 DTO) appearing on a odd working of the Eastbourne Loop there has been at least one Double on it most days recently

A rariety now this time a Single on the Wave 99 Enviro200 36486 (GN12 CKK ) was doing just that it probably got busy as the 99 should really be Doubles and it's full and standing

Another oddie last month was Arrows branded Enviro200 36498 (GN12 CLV) also on the Wave 99.
These were just some of the odd workings from last month.
