As reported in the latest issue of Buses, the quintet are AU07DXS/T/V-X which have fleetnumbers
Sister Gemini 37160 AU07DXX exits Newcastle Under Lyme Bus Station
37156-60 and have been noted operating out of Newcastle Under Lyme in Staffordshire

Regular contributor Neil Chilvers visited the town in early December when he took some pictures of the Geminis in or near the bus station on a rather gloomy day

Whilst he was there, he was also fortunate in getting a photo of another former Eastern Counties bus; Volvo Olympian/ Northern
One time Lowestoft bus 34158 P658UFB is now with First Potteries
Counties Palantine 34158 P658UFB. 

The bus had previously spent sometime operating in Lowestoft before moving north and receiving her new livery.

Many thanks for the photos Neil and it is interesting to see many of the former 'Eastern Counties' buses in their new surroundings
