Panther bodied Volvo B12B

In Newton Abbot yesterday I got my first glimpse of the impressive new 15 metre Volvo B12B(T) / Plaxton 'Accessible' Panther C65FTL tri-axles. This one was privately registered as with all of these new coaches, LSK 835. Though I'm sure these will have problems in the region being this size. The Neoplan's had been doing a good job overall and its a shame to see those decker's go and replaces with the somewhat boring and common Panther body.
While thinking about this I also wondered why National Express didn't opt to go for the new Plaxton Elite bodied beasts. Those really do stand out from the crowd and if anything is eye catching then those would be!
