Simonds double decker
« on: September 28, 2016, 01:38:17 PM »
Simonds of Botesdale have a double decker in service. BV55 UCY is an East Lancs Omnidekka bodied Scania N94UD originally new to Blue Triangle in December 2005 (fleet number SO5). (Blue Triangle was acquired by the Go-Ahead Group in June 2007).

Seen today in Bury St. Edmunds. Here is a link to a photograph:

Presumably it was returned to the same leasing company that Metroline used, who refitted it with seats out of something else as a cheap way to pass an MOT?
