They look identical but were built at different locations. DPS30651 running as (S) 252 picks up at the first stop on its journey to Victoria. Similarly below DPS30640 with the classic AT545 whine pulls into the same stop as (S) 256 around an hour later. :) Taken on 7th August 2017

As with some other Darts I've seen, this one is missing the silver bits around the headlights as they appear to be non-essential components!

These sounded fantastic when going up Highgate Hill on the 214. Shame they are all gone now:(

Fantastic capture btw :)
and Further proving your point, here is DPS30675 missing its left silver headlight component.

Carlisle used to be flooded with Darts but in 2014, most of them were sadly replaced with E200's and Solo SR's...

They had the motto "straight to the Heart of our city". This was my favourite route branding (the 61). They are still run by some darts today but mainly ran by e200's:

I've only seen this yellow and orange design a few times...
(all of these pics not mine)

When I see a Dart on the 61, it sometimes has that original green matrix which I love.
