Is that one of the ex-Corby star buses?

They're all still in service at Kettering except 15402 (KX04RCY) which was written off after heavy front end damage.
They were going to use the front end from 15411 (YN54VKA) to repair it. But those plans were shelved

If I was going to take a guess, it's an ex-Strathtay East Lancs bodied Volvo B7.

The shape of the side engine door looks like a Trident

That offside grille is something that identifies it as a Volvo, imo. Stagecoach never operated many East Lancs bodied Tridents but plenty of Volvos with both Strathtay and around Lincolnshire.

According to additional information now posted on the original flickr photo page this bus is ex Norfolk Green East Lancs bodied Trident PX55AHF
For some reason East Lancs bodied Tridents have a small grill on the offside engine door which other body types don't because the rest of the engine door is behind a car it does look like a B7TL unless you zoom in on the photo.

I stand (or sit) corrected! Those former NG Tridents did seem to vanish...
