  1. Urgency must have taken over come the end, given that a few of them never quite made it to being made single door!

    1. I believe its more to do with the internal arrangements than anything else with the X reg and newer being converted but the Ws remaining dual doorway. Something to do with the staircase possibly?

      Of course I may have just dreamt this?

  2. Spotted a PCB Citaro causing an unholy tailback on the Plymouth bound A38 last evening, with multiple fire appliances and the Highways Agency in attendance and all peering into the engine compartment. Hopefully it wasn't anything too serious!

    yes graham, its to do with the staircase position. on later pvl's the layout was changed.

  4. @Graham, yes, the W-reg PVLs will remain single door due to the centre staircase. All other X/Y reg ones without the centre staircase will be single door converted.
