Found this beauty yesterday, the only surviving TWM/NXWM O405N left. Got chatting with the owner who knew nothing about OMSI or simulators in general and was blown away by my current project as well as the other UK buses both in-game and in development. This specific bus is very special to me as it operated in my area for most of its working life and I have fond memories riding this bus in the 2000s.

Managed to get some detailed reference images for my O405N too!

Livery designer: how many shapes do you want on the front and side?

Absolutely amazing! :O

Just had a stupidly long trip due to traffic on the A30 as always, so some from the Plym Rally.

Woow, nice!
Shame I wasn't in Plymouth at the time. :/
I have seen the Devon General "100 Years" Enviro400 before, though (I think 3x in total). :)
Amazing pictures!

Ended up extending my holiday a couple days extra to go up to kent, and the RH&D happened to have a rally on so, that happened. But I also left my SD card in my computer so all of these were shot with the lowest possible quality or video stills from a GoPro I mount on my DSLR for god knows why.

Hedinghams 255 Dart is seen on route 83B.

This along with its sister 254 (EU05 AUR) were new order for Cardiff bus (Explains the blue dashboard) but the order got cancelled when the buses were already in production, so they ended up with Hedingham and they have had them since new. 14 years and still going strong with nearly all of the other darts Hedingham have. Could do with a new repaint though. :P
