Another Demo for PCB
Plymouth Citybus have had a wide variety of buses on test over the years, and it was feared that under Go-Ahead ownership we may have seen no more on loan from the manufacturers. But no, here we have one of the Mk2 Wright Eclipse bodied Volvo B7s, on loan from Wright for some route testing. Of course we have had the original Eclipse with a Volvo chassis in the city before, but none were ever bought. Will the same be said for the Mk2? The styling is certainly more up to date, though personally I prefer the more 'friendly' look of the Mk1, rather than the more mean and sharp appearance of the Mk2. The bus has previously been on loan to Wilts and Dorset for trailing on a variety of their routes over previous months. Photos thanks to Tom Pearce.
