I did a blog post a while ago highlighting the extended 5/5A and waited for a bit until I got some photos of route 6 as I was lacking route 6 photos back then. Route 6 has been used before down here for the open-top service last year which only lasted one year as it wasn't well used.
Now route 6 is back again this time as a replacement for route 56 running more or less the same route as what the 56 did and it still requires the same amount of buses on it to what the 56 did. Here are some of my photos highlighting the use of buses on the route.
Scanias on route 6: The route is mainly run by E400s during term time either ADL or Scania with one Single-Deck working here are Scanias 15490 and 15329 on the route.

|E300s have been appearing on the route recently here is 27578 having just finished the route this working normally uses an E400|
|At the start of the journey is E300 27574 here it is on the school holidays and Saturdays only 14:36 route 6|
