Oh, then that explains these stickers on both Scania and Optare https://bikovs.co.uk/bckp/bh.jpg
It looks like they are Big Lemon LTD with the Brighton Horizon Coaches as a trading name or something. Solved. Thanks for info John Well

As far as I can see from wikipedia "The Big Lemon" they were founded in 2007 then in August 2020 partnered Seaford & District and called the company Brighton Horizon Coaches, Seaford & District was acquired by Big Lemon in January 2021 so I think a carrier shown as The Big Lemon founded 2007 should cover it and add in notes the vehicles with Brighton Horizons titles. I don't think they are anything to do with "Go Ahead"

John? Do you know anything more about these guys? According to Companies House, one of the directors of Big Lemon Coaches, who as I understood launched Brighton Horizon, is also appointed as the Director of Seaford & District, which is part of Go ahead.
The fleet is all ex GoAhead. Interesting, are they subsidiary or separate?

This is interesting according to MAN service data. Got Engine failure on delivery in 2002, was sent back to Munich for repairs, then came back to Dealer in 2003 and at that time MAN issued a few recalls while travelled, so they fixed them for about a year and in 2004 it was finally delivered to Sim's Travel, Cumbria and got 04 plates. Unfortunately, no info on the very first plate. Might be the trade plates.
 
By the way 11800 pic on site and this interesting story Well Congrats and thanks

Very interesting conversion. By the old pics, it was already produced with low front, but door fitted later, which looks very foreign, comparing for example with Megabus ones, which had a double door for the wheelchair initially. Thanks for photo

Guys! Don't argue Well This is Scania, which was built in two countries. Chassis - Sweden, Body - Finland (Lahti city). Its name is Lahti OmniExpress, and there is no need to make a separate model in the list, since there are no differences from the standard Scania. Most likely it is the Lahti OmniExpress 340 or 360...

Not sure about these. Any ideas how to keep these? We have one Lithuanian in the list as well which is questionable.
 
They were basically, always made by Lahden finnish bodyshop on Scania chassis, but always sold as Scania OmniExpress. Same with Touring HD which is practically built by Higher, but still sold as Touring HD.
 
But the thing is, not all of these do have second long Serial, what is definitely makes it Lahden VIN

Thanks for letting me in, rpr is a very lucky survivor as John Caines bought her from a scrapyard in 1985, he sold her in 1995, she was sold again not long after, around 1996, she was used for various parts for another Val. It was bought on the 6th of December 2015 and was yet again saved from the gas axe.

This one is very interesting.
It was made for Latvian Universals and should be first, or one of the first conversions at Universals (not Silwi anymore) but they still did not have certification.
Lithuanians applied for conversion certificate of this type faster and passed all needed requirements, so it was forwarded to Lithuania and made at Altas.
