It may not even stay at TT, but if it did, and it came down to being numbered either 1100 or 1101, 1101 would be the logical choice

If the government places an order for more of these buses, it might become 1100, like bus 1200. If not, then I think it would be 1101, or possibly even 13xx, as that's what all TT's odd buses are numbered.

1015 (next Scania artic number to be used) or 1050-1099 ( I prefer this one!)

Maybe if it succeeds on the Obahn it will become 601?

If we are all having our 2 cents worth on fleet numbers then I choose 666 to be the fleet number :P

Bear in mind that Scania's suspensions tend to be on the hard side compared to the suspensions on the old Mercs and MANs. Hard suspension + O-Bahn concrete = lots of bounce!

And that's exactly how it is. I rode a new Scania arctic on the track to TTP recently. Sitting just behind the bendy bit, the ride is very bouncy and uncomfortable :-(
