Today i was heading out towards Watford Gap for some lorry/coach photographing, but decided to make a stop off at Van Hool in Wellingborough, as it was more-or-less on the way, kind of.....
We was lucky enough to be granted permission to have a wander round and photograph the vehicles in, and we was greeting by 9 brand new T927 Astromgea`s for Stagecoach Cwmbran (South Wales/Red & White)
Plus one not yet registered, and one inside the shed having livery applied.
Also there was a new VDL/T915 Alicon for Bibby, Ingleton named 'Dales Nemesis', a Volvo B9R T915 Alicon for Aberfeldy Motor Services Fleet Number 47, and a T917 Altano [Glass Roof] Coach for Leon, Stafford given Fleet Number 201.
4 Plain White Coaches were also present, one T916 Tri-Axle one normal T9 Tri-Axle and 2 T917 Astron Tri-Axle, suspect that all these are destined for National Express, but this is unconfirmed.
Thanks to the guys at Van Hool for letting us round today. I can only hope your Friday the 13th was just as luck as ours was!!
PS- The good luck continued, two Nice Volvo B9R Plaxton Two`s were seen on the M1, and some great new Stobart numbers at Crick, not forgetting wall to wall sunshine. A very grand day out.
