It was with Relaxaway tours then, because I remember it at Penrith and a driver wearing a Relaxaway Tours vest got out of the said Scania and was having a yarn with a chap driving the Relaxaway Tours AB Denning Galaxy bodied B7R (?). I think the Scania had Interline accred. on it as well.

What body and when?
I remember the Volvo B7RLE Bustech being trialed there (XNV-535) which was with Busways and Connex and that later was sold to Coastal Liner.

I must say the Busways livery does not look that nice. Be nice it had more colour than being just mostly white.

Could it have been YCP-606 that trialled with Busways (although it was white at Busways)?? There was a huge amount of demos throughout 2002, most of which I am forgetting about...

Not sure, but unlikely to be the same one.

There was 2 Scania demonstrators, one that Connex had XWD991 (now with Shorelink) and YCP606 that Busways and Westway trialled, now in Tasmania.

I remember changing the desto on XWD991 to MERCEDES BENZ at the bus show, much to Scania's disgust.

There was another which was a Euro II spec (with the VOV style dash) and it was registered m/o 7847 (I think, which demoed with Forest and later with Shorelink).

Was actually YID-819, complete westbus spec inside and out looking like a B7RLE twin.
