Collins Coaches, Milton - Fleet Addition
« on: January 12, 2021, 04:53:56 PM »
I haven't been close enough to catch the full registration as of yet, but it appears Collins have acquired another Volvo Olympian in the form of an R registered Alexander bodied example in a plain white wrapper. No fleetnames carried but I keep seeing it around the A10/A14 junction so assume it's theirs!

Could it be L951 MSC has had a repaint from
green to white or R696 DNH

R696DNH is very likely I would say.

Noted L16RTC today on the A428, that registration used to be on an Olympian but now on an ALX400 decker (Trident or Volvo)?

I suspect this may be X329 HLL an ex Metroline Dennis Trident.

Collins have two ALX400 'deckers, one is Trident X329HLL and Volvo B7TL YU52VYM. X329HLL stands out by having a black upper deck whereas YU52VYM is all over white.

YU52VYM rego is still alive on the DVLA and taxed till March
X329HLL is no longer live on the DVLA
