Plymouth Citybus 176

For years Plymouth Citybus would regularly buy about 10 to 15 Double Decker buses at a time. All this came to and end in 1981 with the last batch of Atlanteans. Three Olympians were tried but did not last long. Then in 1984 a real surprise with the arrival of 2 Volvo Citybus double deck coaches. They were not followed by more double deckers until two H registered coaches arrived. Since then only single deckers have been bought - although quite a few second-hand Volvo Citybuses have been bought to replace Atlanteans in recent years. The two original Volvos are still going strong with 176 being caught on camera this morning. It seems odd to think that these are over 20 years old now!
