    These are what Stagecoach wales are having in March to replace our Volvo B10m's on serve 172 Aberdare - Rhondda Valleys - Bridgend - Porthcawl.

    Hopefully these will be a lot better than the enviro 200 darts.

    No front end shots? :?

    E300s using the current bodies we all know look OK but nothing special. I do prefer modern Scania bodies to Dennis vehicles (although from my perspective that's not saying much; when did Dennis last make a vehicle that the enthusiast would enjoy? Or is that just where most I've known were either Darts or given 3-speed gearboxes?), but the older ones weren't that appealing. Hoping to see more of these around soon!

    Production on MAN and Volvo chassis has been discontinued.

    Not sure what you mean by Dennis chassis - the only other chassis option for the E300s now is an ADL chassis.

    The thing that really strikes me is how high the back seats are. Almost as bad as the MAN E200s, which are awful for this.

    Interesting, we also seem to have had a delivery from Agecoach reccently, again aload of 61 plate Enviros...So i'll have to take a closer look at one tommorow - certainly sounded different to our normal drats!

    It's very hard to keep track of what's what with these new-fangled things. So this is the new version, is it. By jiminy, those rear seats look higher than a B6BLE.
    (What are the ones in Exeter, by the way? Are they MANs, or is it MEN?)

    The 59 plate Park and Rides/Leather Seated ones are MAN E300s
    The 60/11 plates with "ex-citi" branding are AD Enviro200 Darts
