Like other builders, there are actually THREE different types of vehicles posted here. The "Classmaster", the "low-floor" route bus and the "Cruiser" coach, just as you'd have different types with other bus companies. Mind you, the 2011 Classmaster is different to this style posted.

:lol: :lol: Dennings my second favourite followed by MAN FYI actually a toss up between Denning and MAN for 2nd place as both are excellent, but to burn a Volvo coach now thats sacrelige like saying burn a Caprice or a Ford :lol: :lol: but BCI's thats ok to burn them if they havent come apart.

The Volvos have served a purpose and there were B10M chassis under the two very first high deck coaches ever built in this country. Sure they weren't a patch on anything with a GM in it but there are plenty of operators out there that built solid businesses with the Volvo brand. As for the B10C vehicles, they needed a 12 speed like the mid-mounts instead of the 7 speeder. The ratio gaps were too big for a vehicle that heavy, no worries in a 2 axle coach though but with the extra weight of a 3 axle coach they just couldn't do it performance wise.
