East Yorkshire buys second hand London double-deckers

East Yorkshire Motor Services are allegedly in the process of acquiring five former London Central Volvo B7TL/Plaxton President low-floor double-deckers. In their sights are PVL 179/83/91/3/4 in the London company, which EYMS intend to number 881-885 in that order. One such vehicle PVL 194 is illustrated in London service. It appears that their destiny is to lose their lids and become open-topped to replace the current step entrance double-deckers at Scarborough on the seafront service.
Incidentally as an aside the other Scarborough seafront operator Seaside Suncruisers, have apparently acquired two former London United Volvo B7TL double-deckers. However, the bodywork is unknown at present, but would be either Alexander ALX400 or Plaxton President version.

  1. Shoreline's B7s are also Presidents (http://www.flickr.com/photos/thespian/6057952075/), I believe that they've also recently purchased an Olympian or two to replace some of their roofed Metrobuses on school work.
