Leyland Victory / Alexander O31/19TL
In another example of Padbus "pushing the boundaries", this bus allows
wheelchair users to travel on the top deck. Whilst this would be
extremely impractical on an ordinary bus service it becomes a more
practical proposition on sightseeing tours. A front engined bus has
been used to allow a wheelchair lift to be installed at the back. The
vehicle chosen is an ex-Hong Kong Leyland Victory which was
thoroughly refurbished and re-engined before it entered service in
2007. The second picture shows the bus being inspected before the
conversion work started.
Rebuilt ABC diecast.
