London Visit

As this is the first post of 2023 we would like to wish you all a very happy New Year!

Regular contributor Omar Atiallah visited London on New Years Day on National Express service 491 with Caetano Levante bodied Scania BV72 XFA providing the means of travel.

It is seen here on its layover at Abellio London's Battersea Depot in the company of other National Express branded vehicles. They included Edwards Coaches' similar BV71 GYS and Volvo B11RT/ Caetano Levante BV17 GUE,

Naturally there was also a large selection of Abellio buses on site and the picture shows ADL Enviro400 9525 SN12 AAX at the forefront of the photo.

If you look carefully at the photos you will see that some of the Wright Streetdecks are brand new and are without their registrations.

Receiving attention in the Abellio workshops was Optare MetroCity EV 1009 YJ22 AXT

Before the return journey Omar got a photo of another of Edwards' vehicles, Caetano Boa Vista bodied Scania K410UB6 BV66 WFL, entering Victoria Coach Station headed up for the 040 Bristol route.

On the return journey he observed a couple of Oxford Tube Volvo B11RLET / Plaxton Panorama's headed by YX70 LVE on Buckingham Palace Road.

My thanks to Omar for all the photos
