Back in time!

Thanks to Martin Priest , I can bring you this photo of Stagecoach South West Transbus ALX400 Trident WA04CRX 18068 on the Stagecoach SW GOLD route to Plymouth via Paignton & Totnes, a route that should be worked by special liveried and high spec interior Scania N230UD/Enviro400s.
Back in 2008, Stagecoach Devon operated a Paignton-Plymouth service X45 using a mix of these Tridents and the 05/55 plate Alexander Dennis Tridents. Now nearly 10 years old, some of these Transbus' are beginning to show their age and I'm sure there would have been a few murmurs of disappointment from customers who had been expecting the "luxuries" of E-Leather seats ,  a brand new bus and Wi-Fi. As an enthusiast, I'd rather travel on the Trident however the comfort of the Enviro's would be greatly missed.
