Eastern Counties were rumoured to be gaining some of the new creation from Wrightbus, The Streetdeck but unfortunately this is not to be just yet! I contacted a photographer on Flickr after seeing a photo of a demonstrator that has arrived for evaluation with East Yorkshire Motor Services.
Streetdeck Demo SL15ZGP
It arrived with EYMS on June 8th and allocated to Hull, it is being used on the X46/47 Hull/Market Weighton/York service for around 3 weeks. The jury is still out on the overall look of the vehicle, i think it is a grower but the individual livery will make the decision for most people depending on the operator involved.
Many thanks to Scott Poole (6228 Leeds on Flickr) for sending the photo to me. Scott also has his own blog which you can visit here www.scottpoolesbusblog.com Well worth a look!
