Additionally, I thought this would appeal to "tonyp" who is a passionate decker supporter!!
In any case, he ain't alone. I am a Volvo Olympian fan. My user name itself is a no brainer.

It is a great shame the Alexander Dennis venture into Australia with Custom was a failure - the new Enviro 500 MMC looks particularly good and has been a success in many places.

Has anyone spotted or confirmed that additional MAN/Gemilang that was mentioned recently and is production of CDI's at Bustech quiet, at present.

I was looking at a YouTube video of those new 10.4m full electric DD's in Wellington NZ, they look a bit strange, but seem to run OK.

ADL bought a large share in CC but the latter went under and had to be rescued by its previous management. It was then renamed Custom Buses.
