Does anyone have a rough idea of when the 407’s 59 plates and the 410’s 12 plates will be refurb’d?
Although I have just realised that the 407 is turning full double deck operation in November.
The 407's 59 reg E200's will not be refurbished. They were not intended to remain for the route in the first place until a PVR increase in late 2015 returned them to use. Not sure why they weren't refurbished then but I don't think BC had any idea of which ones were going to remain as out of the batch of ex 407 E200's reinstated during summer 2015, 8521 and 8527 were transferred to TF once the 152 was lost in December 2016 then 8518 and 8519 transferred to TF in October 2017. I reckon the remainder (8522/8523/8524/8526) will either transfer to TF or be withdrawn once the 407 goes double deck
In regards to the 410's refurbishments, I heard that they are expected to begin once the 393 goes to Metroline as two of its ENS will be transferring to TH as refurb floats, so if this were to happen these would be in full swing by April/May. Quite surprised the 313's ENX's haven't been refurbished even though two of the ex T31 ENL's moved to E for the route
