Spectras - the low floor ones will still be about Very Happy

If it is to 2016 then that is not that bad since they will all be knackered (some already are) by then anyway.

The closer to the deadline the stronger the flow of ex london buses will become, and the amount of terrible single door convertions will go throught the roof.

Bwahaha.. I think up here in cumbria the ONLY step entrance buses are the old B10M's.

We've already made the transition with Lillyhall Depot having a good 60-70% of the fleet as Low Floors, the rest... byeeeeeeeeeee Twisted Evil

Yep they are the ones, the leather seats are nasty and cold, and the buses rattle like mad. We have just recieved a load of ex stagecoach London (ELBG) alx200 transbus darts, but I like darts so they are ok.

Lol, we only have like 4 step entrance vehicles left that are used fairly regularly... damn Volvo Olympian Palatine 2s. Sooner they get rid of them the better, even though we've only had them for like 2 years or so Razz

Rarely do I see a PP1 step Dart pop up here nowadays, got replaced by the effin Marshalls
