A-Line fleet updates

The first of the new buses to join A-Line Travel  Coaches this week was this Marshall bodied Iveco 59.12. This bus has only had one previous owner, this being Heron of Crawley, and has been a loyal working on their local services for many years now. But the time came for fleet replacement, so A-Line snapped up this tidy, well maintained vehicle fast. Of course A-Line have always found favour with the Iveco over the companies history, with 2 Ex-Southern Vectis Ivecos operating at one point. 

The new Iveco, now known as 'Ivor' in the fleet, has replaced the Ford Transit which suffered with capacity issues on the peak services. Though the bus' main use will be on one of the Torpoint school runs. I've yet to ride on the vehicle, so I can't tell you what its like, but hopefully soon she'll be in line to take over the service running in the event of the 'Bertie' aka R651 YCR breaking down.
