|319: (OM13 OAU) Ankai HFF6110GS-2
This Chinese built bus was a surprise purchase in 2013 as it had been
planned to phase out tri-axle open toppers. However, this one is
shorter that the other 6 wheelers and has an air-conditioned lower deck
for those hot Oxford summers. It replaced Dennis
Trident/Metsec-Alexander 310. In 2019 this bus
was converted to battery electric operation by Magtec. Following
experience gained in operating earlier battery electric conversions,
this bus has been equipped for opportunity charging via a gantry
installed for the purpose at Oxford train station (where all the open
top buses are scheduled to wait for 15 minutes between tours).
Repainted 80M diecast.
