  • FYLDE BUS BLOG: Volvo Olympians at 20 The 1990s was a famine for new double deck buses. Between the 1989 Leyland Olympians and 2002 Dennis Tridents, just one batch of six new Volvo Olympians arrived in 1994. Volvo had taken over Leyland Bus in 1988 and its Olympian chassis was relaunched under the Volvo mark in 1993 and unusually for Volvo still featured the Cummins L10 engine.

  1. This shows the lack of foresight by the City Council. Encourage people to use public transport and then ban the buses from the main street in the City Centre, all because they are unable to manage a little crowd control. Huge disruption for the bus companies and regular customers for some minor celebrity to turn on a few Xmas lights. Bah humbug
