These may look familiar to some of you - still in service in Weymouth.

Isn't there some of this batch in service in Colchester? I've never understood why Stagecoach got rid of these so early.

I think up to a couple of years ago, Weymouth still had a handful of JHU-X and NTC-Y Olympians in everyday service, so I think these still have several years to go.

Some of them or some of a similar batch. They still have some Northern Counites Volvo Olys in First Essex.

Stagecoach leased several large batches of these from Volvo. The majority were eventually replaced by 2nd hand Olympians from London.
