I have heard today that Runcorn Depot might be due to close in the near future, The X30 is to move over to Chester in the next few weeks, The X1 branded Pulsars are said to be getting route branding for this with the new MAN Eco Citys replacing them

With the 110 coming to St Helens, Arriva have good opportunity to extend the route to St Helens replacing the 329 between St Helens and Warrington. I doubt they would do it though.

All this is dependent on the bridge tolls though so don't take for granted just yet as there gonna see what it cost the depot to operate over the toll bridges.

Be interesting to see if the rogue VDL Wright Pulsar 2 MX09EKP at Chester is branded for the X30 bearing in mind this wears the old Sapphire livery at present and of course if this all comes about.
