Ex Reading Omnicity's arrive at Sanders Coaches

The "three more double deckers due in August" for Sanders Coaches as mentioned here and on their website several weeks ago have arrived!

They are ex Reading Buses 90 seater Scania Omnidekkas so fit into the fleet well alongside the numerous ex Menzies Scania Omnicity's already present.

So far two vehicles have been sighted... YN54AFV and YN54AFO, they are in full Sanders Coaches livery with route branding for Sheringham - Cromer - Norwich 44/44A/X44 services

Quite suprisingly it is reported that as a result of these arrivals Sanders two existing Volvo B9TL/Optare Olympuses PL08YLZ and PL08YMA have been sold to Ensignbus to join their bus fleet.

Thanks to Colin Humphrey for informing us of the new arrivals, Kevin Smith for the photo and Alex Hazell for informing us of the sale of the Olympuses to Ensignbus.
