TP 3002

Post by actually »

The trial CC bodied Iveco TP 3002 has made its way over to Malaga depot. Originally with sWAn Transit, PATH Transit inherited this unique bus with contract changes about 2 years ago. It has come from Welshpool depot for some much needed TLC. Also seen next to the CC bodied MAN TP 3001....a bus supposed to be BT bus 1614 from memory.

Thanks for posting Actually!
Although I make it no secret that I am no fan of anything silver, that shot of 3001 and 3002 is something that would be hard to replicate so well done!

I lost my job when ADL went into VA after working at Custom Coaches for 35 years, but luckily enough I received a phone call from the "NEW / OLD" owner to come back..

Rode it once on the 371. Awfully slow/sluggish.

Depending on when that was, it has improved tremendously more recently. Great to see it out and about so much, especially given the troubled start to life it had.

Would have been sometime July/August. I guess slowness could also be attributed to driver habit.
It arrived at Warwick about 10 mins late, left 12 mins late and by the time I got off, the ETiM was reading "VERY LATE 14m 57s" and the following 371 had overtaken us. Again, since it would have been 1-2 months, performance likely should've improved.
