Volvo B10M / Plaxton Paramount Expressliner C53F
Built in 1993 for the London service and carrying the standard bus livery of the time, this coach did see some local service work later in its life. It was withdrawn and scrapped in 2007.
This model was based on a Lowland white metal kit. Problems with the kit led to the sides and roof having to be scratchbuilt from plasticard. The result was never entirely satisfactory hence the decision to scrap it.
