Was time was you in Sutton and Walsall? I caught 4269 on the 5 to Sutton and 4357 on the 77 to Walsall. 4298 is a good bus and 4262 is one of my favourite ALX400's, it's one of a few that has its heating working and makes a classic Metrobus sound when it pulls away lie 4226.

I think I was in Sutton between 10 & 11 and Walsall between 12 & 1.
