By the way. September is in 6 days. Knowing all this crap going on, with pretty much no funds left in the coach industry, which operator will get first 70 plate bus this year? As new decade plates will go with 20/70; 21/71; 22/72 etc.

>This is X119 ABA!
 
MEGA Well
 
Now it is interesting, why they tried to sell that plate.

They had it for long on Setra, then on Neoplan (YN04 AVF).

I've found it - DVLA records show that this was first registered in September 2009. At that time, Mayne Coaches of Manchester received two Cityzens: X118 ABA and X119 ABA. Both subsequently passed on to Holmeswood, and were re-registered ESK 807 and 466 YMG respectively. I was trying to work out what the word above the nearside headlamp says, but I've realised that it doesn't say anything, it's the remnants of a Scania logo that has fallen off. Looking through Flickr, X119 ABA/466 YMG is seen with the logo in 2008 (https://www.flickr.com/photos/avro45/9734120880/), and without it in 2012 (https://www.flickr.com/photos/nicksbuscoach/8054866915/).
 
This is X119 ABA!
 
I've also found out during this search that Spike's Coaches and C L Travel (the Probus I posted at the same time as this) are the same company, under the banner of Collins, but seperate from Collins Coaches, Cambridge...

Right. Did some research.
Cityzens were built only on Scania N113DRB Chassis in 1996-2000 period. There were total 116 produced. Around 20 converted later to open top buses, unknown amount scrapped.
If seats were unchanged, this is definitely not one of 47 Brighton buses, as they had orange/brown seats. But even with this info, I think there is no luck to identify initial reg from ~60 left Not so
But good catch. Maybe in some time, info will float up.

The purchase of this bus by Kavanagh is mentioned in page 14 of the Spring 2009 edition of Fleet Transport Bus & Coach:
https://issuu.com/rivierabrian/docs/fleetbncspring09
 
Just a note too, in the fleet list "Pierce Kavangh & Sons" should be spelled "Pierce Kavanagh & Sons" (final 'a' in 'Kavanagh' missing) Well

Cheers for update Finlay.
So far, looks like the only evidence of this in Ireland is that small pic there:

>Lucketts having just been purchased by National Express, what's the plan for the database?
Simple. All stays the same as it is now. If any Luckett's or it's subsidaries will be observed in NatEx livery, then just add another string for NatEx. Also, thanks for your awesome contributions.

It's true that the logo is definitely Lucketts-y, but I can't find any evidence of a connection. None of Skills literature mentions Lucketts, and Lucketts' listed subsidiaries only include Worthing Coaches, Coliseum Coaches, Solent Coaches and Mortons Travel.
 
Also, with Lucketts having just been purchased by National Express, what's the plan for the database?

Wondering by looking at their logo, aren't they somehow connected to Luckett's?

Added all known transfer dates and plate to history.
Maybe now there is a chance to identify with whom it was, as no more info at my side.

Coach&Bus Weekly magazine says "Flixbus has applied for an Operator’s Licence in the UK. The application is for the East of England Traffic Area for one vehicle to be based at Unit 1-2, Buckingway Business Park, Rowles Way, Swavesey, Cambridgeshire. This is the same operating centre address as Whippet Coaches Limited."
 
Interesting. Knowing that "Souter Holdings" (Stagecoach) sold their Polish divison "Polski Bus" to "Flixbus" and on return they are not connected anymore.

>Nice catch Well

Aye, the rollers are there on the front wheels because this service runs on the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway - see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cambridgeshire_Guided_Busway - it also has multiple view cameras instead of mirrors. Well
 
I believe that these have come in to replace the 2009 Enviro 400s like this: https://busphoto.club/view/3500/ that have had the guiding rollers removed. These '09 Enviro 400s will now run the 5 and 6 services that used to run by ALX400s that have gone up to Stagecoach Manchester Well

The seats on this bus are in a 2-3 configuration. You'd be pinched sideways rather than longways...
Interesting to note that this is the only single decker coach in Dunmows fleet that they don't classify as 'Executive' (with the exception of their 1957 Vintage coach). Well

As we now have more than 5 buses from "Mulleys", it is moved out of "Various" and listed as a separate carrier.
