Spare Coastliners

Seen spare in the Transdev York, Fulford depot are 274 (YJ08PKX) - an Optare Versa V1100 - new to Lancashire United. Next to that is 450 (YJ05FNH), a Wright Eclipse Urban bodied Volvo B7RLE that was new to Yorkshire Coastliner, and was with Harrogate & District painted in Yorkshire Express livery for X54 Harrogate - York. 450 is currently used on 844 Heworth - York - Leeds and 743 York - Leeds services that were set up in direct response to First York competing with Yorkshire Coastliner between York and Leeds with service X64. Transdev York's new services have become so popular 450 has now been withdrawn, and replaced with a Volvo B7TL/Wright Eclipse Gemini Double Deck from Malton to ease overcrowding on the 743 service, as standing isn't allowed on the motorway. 450 has yet again received another colour scheme, as was transferred to Keighley shortly after this photo was taken!
