Bendy Bus Surprise

We thought that the recent introduction of ex London bendy buses onto the cross Tyne route would settle down once the fleet had been phased into service.
However, a surprise working this week produced 4951on the 58 service. This is one of the original Scania L94 Wright Solar Fusion bendy buses displaced from the X66 CentreLink express service between Gateshead and the Metrocentre by more of the ex London vehicles. Since 2001 these buses have rarely strayed off the route for which they were purchased and 4951 looks quite out of place winding its way around the streets of Newcastle.
