According to MAN Service program I check MAN and Neoplan details from time to time, this one was UK MAN Truck and bus showroom demonstrator for nearly a year before the first registration. But in the same time, according to the same service program assembly list, this one is the most "naked" basic version available. Does not even have individual air vents or reading lights. Just grey plastic inserts all way long. Very interesting what did they tried to demonstrate? Usually demonstrators come nearly over packed with extras, to show all available options to potential buyer. This one is completely opposite Well

Maybe but it's a small group and part of Stagecoach so I think it should be left as it is? You could think the same way for "Greenline" from Arriva. We're increasing the number of carriers for the UK almost weekly but it's up to you ;-)

What I am thinking - Would it be a bit easier, if we separate these out of main Stagecoach city bus list, by making something like Oxford Tube Stagecoach? How do you think guys?

Well. The reg plate is not recognized anymore by DVLA or VOSA.
There are usually 3 routes after school services. Withdrawal to scrap, Export to Ireland or other RHD countries, or stationary. Will check irish forum later. maybe something.
Paragon on KZL plate sold the same day as this, is still with Crawley as P15 CLC

My retirement plan is to get Axial 100 and convert it to mobile home.
Guest sitting area and kitchen on lower deck, and two bedrooms and own hall on the upper.
Then you just need to buy or rent small space at any of the truckyards, connect it to the electricity and wastage, and once per year go for the MOT. And if "feck it, rocket in the ass" mood starts up, fill up and drive on sightseeing tour. Should be cheaper overall than buying a house. And Axial to be honest, is more made for that conversion than any other double decker. These have pretty high roof on top, comparing with Astromegas or Neoplans Well

Good question, I see a lot of operators already carry Leger branding with their own branding whilst doing contracts for Leger Holidays so it may be confusing? Maybe wait and see how Leger brand the ex shearings coaches or if they change it at all?
 
The present Shearings/National Holiday could be closed as of May 2020 (I still have more of both to upload but no problem adding to them)

"Leger Holidays has acquired the former Shearings brand, it has announced.
 
Shearings’ parent Specialist Leisure Group (SLG) ceased trading in May. SLG blamed the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic for a demise that also captured Caledonian Travel and National Holidays among other subsidiaries. Leger has not purchased those brands.
 
Leger Holidays Chief Executive Ian Henry says that the Rotherham-based company will operate Shearings as a stand-alone brand within its portfolio."
 

Any ideas guys, how we will sort them in the future? Maybe we tick Closed to this carrier, and create new Shearings & Leger?

Might be true. But anyway looks like UK ones have different offset. Check depth of ventilation holes
better seen here: https://busphoto.club/view/3131/ comparing to that same https://busphoto.club/view/903/
Same with 415GT-HD.
UK version: https://busphoto.club/view/2827/ and Continental: https://busphoto.club/view/1389/

I'm going to guess Andrejs, my idea is that the bolts are protected from damage against the kerb or they are hidden to stop injury to passengers or pedestrians walking by?

Always wondered about British Setra rims.
They are totally different from continent, and even Irish have them as on continent.
Compare. If not hiding under the wheel caps, all UK Setras have as above, while all continental and Irish have these https://busphoto.club/view/903/
And this is not because decorative bolt rings fitted. look at the shape and ventilation holes.
Any ideas why?

Was overtaking one of these yesterday on A12 ,not far from Felixstowe roundabout towards London. Was on dealer plates.
Might be new arrival. As far as I know, they assemble them all in Egypt and F-stowe is cargo port.

All might be, as even on this photo in 2014 it looks very tired.
According to Irish transport enthusiast FB group, this was last observed mid 2017 with Fairbrothers, and no news since then. In the same time, it could be easily exported somewhere to Ukraine and used as caffe.  I would say - Brown is good so far, as we have no clue at all

Can you guys please give a bit more info about Cardiff Navigatours?
Is it part of the Bath Bus Company as a brand, or is absolutely separate?
Confuses me a bit, as all sources showing lots of "hard" transfer in 01.2016, so, wondering, how correct it is this list then: https://busphoto.club/index.php?a=ps&v=list&did=280&mid=39

Seen it in their interchange base in Port Swiecko, Poland, where all passengers change yheir coaches from Warsaw to the final destinations. Was loading to Paris. This is very well packed. Large seats with head support, and normal Irizar legroom. And only me on the longest journey to UK, got standard trim Setra S517 with no extras Well))
