The photo at the top of NX 1889's page says the location is Dudley Bus Station, it's actually Bilston Bus Station.

Stagecoach / Re: Stagecoach in Warwickshire

No gen here, but a bit of chit chat!

Had ex Northampton 39699 for 3 and a half hours today, very very impressed! Much better than the pile of crap 39700, and better than the rest of the Ex Northampton MANs, very impressed.

Plenty of power with a good kickdown, responsive and smooth gearbox, suspension was very nice, brakes took some getting used too but turned out to be extremely smooth for a MAN, and the steering is the best steering on any Nuneaton depot bus. Good bus,  very good bus!

The Diamond machines can do Qr codes can they?

When are Nx rolling their machines out to rest of the fleet?

Yes, our Day/return/Week/monthly tickets printed from the machine now have QR codes. Much easier than checking every single date/vadility

Aren't the inspector scanners just NFC-enabled Android phones? ???
Correct, they use phones, they don't use scanners @GeminiFan1991

The Diamond machines can do Qr codes can they?
Yes Diamonds and Firsts new ticket machines can do QR codes.
With the new First Kernow ticket machines, a day/weekly ticket is issued, at the bottom of the day/weekly ticket is a QR code, when you next board a bus you scan it using the barcode scanner when you next board the bus and the ticket machine will either say valid or invalid with the expiry date of the ticket, very good idea, as that'd prevent people showing crumpled up out of date day savers to the driver and just walking on.

Oddly I've noticed when Inspectors check the cards, the scanner they use often works quicker to validate the ticket !

Quite relieved to hear the paper passes aren't going just yet.
