More Scottish coaches
« on: March 20, 2014, 01:48:23 PM »
These first shots are from the House of Bruar, along the A9 not far from Blair Atholl. The first bus is a Neoplan Tourliner for City Circle out of Edinburgh.


VDL Bova coach owned by Prentice Westwood.


Smaller Mercedes powered UNVI owned by Edinburgh Bus Lines.


Now we're over to the intercity coaches. This is MegabusGold's route between Inverness and Glasgow, via Aviemore. The bus is a Van Hool double decker.


We're still lookig at intercity coaches, but are now up to Stracathro Services on A90 between Forfar and Aberdeen. This is another MegabusGold Van Hool, on the route between Glasgow and Aberdeen.


Many companies do these intercity runs in Scotland, it seems. Here is Parks of Hamilton with a Plaxton, also en route to Aberdeen, in Citylink livery.


Another company and another Plaxton, this time CitylinkGold, going the other way, i.e. to Glasgow from Aberdeen.


Here comes the Megabus on its way from Aberdeen to Edinburgh. This is also a Plaxton.


Here is some hired Megabus power. Mcleans Bova running for Megabus on their Aberdeen route.


Citylink Plaxton en route from Aberdeen to Glasgow.

Love how most of those guys have their mirrors WAY out in front.

Shows a lot more of the side during stopped for loading/unloading with civilians/little kids close by, & when under way, driver's peripheral vision does the rear-view thing as he looks straight down the road ahead.
If you don't ask, they can't say no.

Interesting.  The new double decker buses that GO bought for the southern Ontario area are
built by William Denison, who is a Scottish based bus builder, and none of the buses in your
catch are represented.

Alexander Dennis apparently own Plaxton, so many of the coaches in this post are actually from part of the Alexander Dennis group. I didn't know this until I looked around their web site: http://www.alexander-dennis.com/

Very true. That is pretty much the standard mirror configuration for coaches over here these days. Unfortunately this is not the case for city buses/intercity buses, which I drive. Only the passenger side mirror is "way up front" there, and the driver's side mirror has to be looked at through the side window.
