Buses in Brighton: Part 1 Stagecoach buses on the 17 and 700

 I have been travelling again and on the 29th of the month, I visited Brighton for the 4th time for bus snapping. There were so many buses in different colours with Buses from Stagecoach South, Brighton and Hove and MetroBus snapped. This section will be based on the Stagecoach buses that were snapped during my visit.

Stagecoach run 2 routes into Brighton the 17 and Coastliner 700 which use E300s and ADL MMCs here are as selection of E300s and MMCs that were snapped.

Route 1 branded E300 27844 is seen working the 17 

Coastliner ADL MMC 10944 is seen on its usual 700 route

MMC 10965 is seen setting down whilst on a 700

The first East Sussex Single-Deckers in new colours

 After 15329 emerged as the first East Sussex Double-Decker in the new colours, a few more East Sussex Buses this time Single-Deckers have now appeared in the new Stagecoach local colours. The buses are Eastbourne E300 27578 GX58 GKK and Hastings E200 36497 GN12 CLU. Both buses feature no black window surrounds and the addition of black headlights on the front and rear.

The selection of images featured are both the buses in their first few weeks back in service in the new colours with 36497 sometimes doing the 99 and 27578 doing a wide range of routes mainly the 1/1A I'm going to start with the most recent images I have got of both buses.

I snapped 36497 on its first day back out and 27578 emerged a few days later.

E300 27578 stands in Eastbourne Town Centre in its new colours it was on the 1

E200 36497 stands at the 99 stop just before it works the 13:03 Wave 99 to Hastings

27578 is also seen on the 1s in this photo here it's seen picking up for a 1

Here are some nice sunny shots of both 27578 and 36497 27578 was doing another 1 and 36497 is seen on its first day back.

36497 is seen on its first day back in new colours it even looks better than the Street Deck behind depsite being an E200.
There will eventually be more Singles and even Doubles appearing soon in the new colours.
