"More details have been made available to us of the fleet cascade plan which will be put into action when the new 11.8 metre Gold-spec Enviro 200MMCs enter service at Nuneaton at the end of this month. 11 Enviro 200s will transfer from Nuneaton to Leamington and Rugby with 13 MAN/Enviro 200s moving to Rugby and Kettering. The transfers will eliminate the Dart SLF type from Leamington and Kettering, leaving just Rugby and Corby operating them.
The transfers will also see the Optare Solo eliminated from the Corby allocation  with 47418 transferred to Kettering and others of the type at Corby withdrawn for disposal. The elimination of the Solos at Corby will leave just the Scania/East Lancs double decks 15401-05 operational in Corby Star livery. This is one of the longest surviving local identity brands within Stagecoach.
Once all the changes have taken place Corby will have Dart SLFs 35174/75/76/77/78/79, 35218/19/21/22/23/24/25/26 on its books with 35180-85 in the main fleet at Rugby and 34815-18 in the Reserve Fleet there. All other Dart SLFs will be for disposal."

So,
16 Darts to go: 34591-4; 34625-8; 34642-4; 34772; 34821-4
5 or 6 Solos to go: 47044/050/129/339/340. And 47404?
I'm guessing that Nuneaton's venerable Solos 47075-7 are also for the chop.  That would total 24 (or 25) withdrawals.

34821-3 came new with branding for the 19 and will be withdrawn twelve years later with that branding still in place andstill operating the 19.  Unusual, if not unique.
