R833OVN – 833 – Volvo Olympian Alexander RL- New to Stagecoach Transit as their 833, it lasted in the fleet right through into the Stagecoach “Beach Ball” days where it was regularly used for the Macmillan Academy/College school runs, eventually it was withdrawn and purchased by now defunct local independent Stagecarriage for further use on contracted school work. Whilst with Stagecarriage it received a high speed rear axle – greatly improving its top speed.
It later passed to Cumbria Classic Coaches who used it during winter to prevent salt damage to their classic half cab vehicles operating their tourist services. Unfortunately its engine seized and she was subsequently acquired by the group in 2019. She is currently awaiting an engine transplant (engine acquired) and we hope to have her on the road before 2022.
