I'm not particularly interested in single-deckers, but I find it a bit upsetting that such modern , and apparently successful examples, are already "biting the dust" !!

Also, a bit upsetting is that around 15 / 16 years has gone by so quickly !!!

I'd be grateful to have a few back to replace the awful StreetLites, StreetMax's and StreetDecks

67643 didn't enter service with First Cymru and has recently passed to Trevor Wigley.

67636 also hasn't entered service.

The three that were used - 67632, 67633 and 67634 - are now classed as withdrawn.

Such a waste.. I love them. Brilliant engines, great gearboxes, simple air suspension. A far better vehicle than a million kilometre Citaro. I can't believe they're going to be cut up
