Flickr Sunday Best: Trathens STT601X

A superb shot of a superb coach. Trathens Skyliners always stood out. It is hard now to recall the massive impact that these coaches made when they went into competition with National Express. I had several rides on these coaches, with a few of them being on '01'. They gave a great ride and the front upper deck seats gave great views. Hostess service as well all added to a far superior service than that offered by National Express.
NX soon had to catch up though and the Metroliners were not bad coaches, but they just didnt have the visual impact that these fine machines offered.
