If it is, I wonder if they'll want (2)450 back. It is just a standard K320UB with the build style of most K280UBs in service.

Could've been numbered 2400 instead of something obscure, but it's not highly relevant, provided that it can be identified.

Unnecessary additional post in lieu of simple edit, but from what I can tell, 2415 is definitely a write off.

Severe damage to the body, and the chassis probably wouldn't be worth salvaging. Lonsdale will be able to commemorate their first arrival of a precision buses model to replace it, unless something from TT is transferred.

I wonder what the commuters will think of it.

It wasn't that healthy when I caught it last, but also less vanilla than most Scanias. Is it off the road for repairs?

It seems to have either something wrong with it's differential, or possibly even fuel intake issues.
Back in service this morning on the O-Bahn.
