Forest Coach Lines new MAN/Gemilang Deckers

Postby Tim Williams » Sun Dec 31, 2017 12:48 pm

Forest's MD announced in November 2016 that they had ordered 3x MAN A95 double deckers and that they would be in service before the B-Line service commenced.

Any news of these 3 buses?

Thanks.

Though I saw a Forest DD last time I did cross regional at Olympic Park. too busy manoeuvring through the site to pay much attention to detail (I think it was 15.11.17 for a soccer friendly).

THanks,

They operate 2 x Bustech CDI's and the "prototype MAN/Gemilang sported a Forest Logo at one stage. I believe that particular bus was only 4.2Mtrs tall and was critisised for its upper deck headroom.
