  2. To Tom,

    Thanks for the suggestions, they sound good, at the moment I won’t be branching out, but when I do, I will consider your ideas as they are good routes.


  3. Ok Thanks

    Some brandings

    C1 Optare Solo South Shields Coaster
    49 Dennis Dart SPD Doxford Links
    59 Wright Cadet The 59
    3X Optare Tempo The North Express
    46 Scannia Omnicity Costal Links

  4. Would it be possible to help with ‘Deernees Motor Services’ and ‘SouthShields&Sunderland’

    Please contact me at and I could design routes eg.


  5. I have one route for you : X4 To Durham city centre with branding

  6. To Jim,

    Thanks for the advice but where is this service running from? It would have to commercially viable, if you mean a circular service it would not be viable as there is too monopolisation of branches out of the city. Plus the geographical size of Durham is very small as well meaning the circle wouldn’t really benefit many people.


  7. I know, i suppose the X4 could possibly go from Durham to Middlesbrough via Spennymoor, Bishop Auckland, Darlington then down the A66

  8. To Robert,

    Sorry but that would never be viable, it is essentially just duplicating routes that already exist.
