1 pointBrand new First Apsley 47999 (YJ66 UKV) on its 1st day in service. Joining the fleet of several Solaris U12s at Apsley, 47999 is one of two evaluation buses, the other being 48000. 47999 is equipped with a 4.5 litre Cummins engine, identical to those found in Wright StreetLites, Optare Solos and ADL Enviro200s. 48000, on the other hand, has the standard DAF engine but uses a ZF gearbox. The purpose of the evaluation is for First to consider whether it should continue to use the DAF-Voith combo, or invest in the Cummins-Voith or the DAF-ZF option. These will also be replacing the aging MAN SD202s that are often used on the 375. From my experience with this bus, it is just as nice to drive, with lovely sounds - it works well on country roads. I'd be very happy if the depot decide to invest in these ones
1 pointToday I began a new project pack of repaints. Breng Arhnem/Nijmegen (dutch cities). This pack will include the breng and Brengdirect MAN Lion's city bus, The CNG citaro Facelift (the CNG tank from morphi is not the same as what they have for real unfortunately but close enough. ) The Citaro Facelift G (half real repaint). The facelift G does not have a CNG tank. Yes I know of the mod from Finlay but that has a lot of problems with repaints which I have tried and failed to get it working and the Citaro G from Alterrr.
