Bristol Lodekka FLF5S / ECW O21/21FL.
For a second attempt at a wheelchair accessible open topper, Padbus
turned to the Bristol Lodekka. In this version the wheelchair is lifted
diagonally up to the rear of the top deck. Lower deck wheelchair access
is via the front door. As this bus has been thoroughly updated and
fitted with a Scania engine it has also been fitted with the bonnet
assembly of a Scania truck. It is finished in a simplified version
of the open top livery as it was not intended to be a long term member
of the fleet. It entered service for the summer season in 2009 and was
withdrawn and sold in September of that year.
This is a heavily modified EFE diecast with the bonnet assembly from a Siku diecast truck.
