Following on from the worst bus thread, what,in your opinion, is the best bus you have ever been on, single decker and double decker either as a driver or a passenger? My own preference would be a pair of Bristol's (snigger), for a single decker a Bristol RE is probably my favourite, smooth, good acceleration, comfortable and warm. Well built, none of the shakes and rattles you seem to get on modern buses. We had one or two of these when I started in 1985 and they got rid of them soon after. For a decker I preferred a Bristol VR with a semi auto box and power steering. Again well built, the steering column looked like Fred Flintstone had carved it from rock. We had some without power steering and they were hard work, later they changed them to full auto which I didn't like. I don't know much about buses but to me these vehicles harked back to the past a bit, before light weight became the norm.
