As most of the work on 5137 was completed by Paul today, I decided to commence the overhaul of Nuw the Titan's interior. Her LT panels will become Stagecoach blue and eventually all her LT seating will be swapped for Stagecoach trimmed seats making her interior all rather blue but clean looking. This will go well with the exterior when done, as she will don the traditional Devon General livery and the older Devon General vehicles had blue interiors. Nuw's interior will be completed with a mix of paint and sticky vinyl.
Going through my picture collections I stumbled across a shot of this Stagecoach East Kent Unibus liveried Volvo Olympian seen in Pin Hill, Canterbury. Although only taken a few years ago, the Olympians have now been replaced on this service by 'Transbus' Tridents in an orange, brown, white and blue livery (which from the front looks very Greater Manchester PTE!). With the surviving Volvo Olympians becoming preservation prospects in their own rights, I wonder if anyone will preserve one in this livery. It's certainly not a classic but would make a change from standard Stagecoach colours.
