Following great speculation, Hulleys 'newdecker V140 LGC was shown at the Bus & Coach Live Exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham this week.
It is a former London Central Volvo B7TL / Alexander ALX400 10.1m, which was numbered AVL 40 in the London Central fleet. The centre doors have been removed and the bus has been painted by Volvo, in Hulleys fleet colours of cream and blue.

During operation in London these buses had hard plastic seats on the rear section of the upper deck in order to resist vandalism and during refurbishment these seats are usually removed and replaced with conventional seating.
