Hi guys, what are your favourite buses on Omsi 2, I know it says this on your profile, but I just wanted to know, mine is the Alexander Dennis 200.
Love the voithGemini 2s are bright airy, and modern designs, NRMS are poorly thought out, but they look really good, and the interior is nice. My favourite engine/driveline would have to be the E40H BAE, I simply love the whoosh they make when they set off. Not sure how your favourite bus is the E200 though.
Something you forgot from the Euro2, is that really low tone when they first accelerate :PI don't know quite what it is that makes me like them, but I do like a Euro 2 Dart (e.g. X212ONH)... They're noisy, they jolt when the AT545 gets confused, they rattle like a mother and baby centre, the suspension bottoms out on pot-holes and the Urban 90s make your butt sore, but for some reason I like them. :tongueout: A Euro 3 Dart has a better ride with seats that have actual padding and a much smoother engine + gearbox combo, but although the ISBe purrs nicely at low rpm, it quickly becomes crap when it actually tries to generate power. The E200 took the already not exciting E3 Dart and somehow made it worse... sadly whining away and not generating much power or so much as sound that resembles power from the 4-cyl ISBe...
If you want a double-deck, has to be a Trident...
And if you want a coach... no competition
Wow, an ex wymetro MyBus. I've probably been on that bus going to school many years ago...
Is that an open day or something because humans (not staff) on out of use buses in depots getting washed seems weird.Wow, an ex wymetro MyBus. I've probably been on that bus going to school many years ago...
For me, my favourite single decker is the B10BLE Renown. My favourite double decker is the B9TL Gemini 2. I was very happy to hear Transdev operate both in their Harrogate fleet, so I'm not missing out on traveling on my favourite buses

Gotta agree there, they do sound marvelous.54/05 plate Volvo B7RLE - Wright Eclipse Urban. Particularly the 667's in our fleet. Lovely and smooth, warm, quick comfortable.
Citaros are much better quality compared to any British bus I've been on. I wish 10 & 8m versions had been made so instead of heapviros, they would be sonething I actually wouldn't mind spending time on.
