Here's a re-purposed bus I spotted a few months ago. Try and guess the chassis without looking it up.

And below is a pretty easy one, especially if you're familiar with Midland Classic's fleet. Again, try and guess the chassis without resorting to the google.

Yes, that's the one. I wondered if I was going to be able to fool anyone into thinking it was the K230UB they have, or a Volvo because it doesn't have the usual grille for an L94UB.


Nope, none of those. Unsure if this will help or make things more confusing but it's an 06 plate.
It's not a b7rle or b7l is it?

I would guess the first one is an East Lancs Esteem bodied ADL Dart MPD, and the second one is a Scania L94UB/Wright Solar.

These are both the correct answer. Right down to the fact it's an ADL Dart over Dennis/Transbus manufactured Darts.

Effectively yes - Esteem bodywork on Dart chassis. I wasn't being picky over which specific manufacturer (Optare/ELC or Dennis/Transbus/ADL) because of them both changed within a couple of years of each other! So yeah you're right.
