When coaches were deregulated in the early 1980s Padbus purchased this high specification coach complete with toilet, coffee machine and video monitors for continental shuttle work under the Cotswold Continental name. However, this proved to be a short-lived market and the coach ended up being used as a back-up on the Oxford-London service. It was withdrawn in 2000 and is now in the care of the Exeter Chapter of the Padbus Preservation Partnership.
