Brand new coach in Norwich

Take a look at this head turner photographed gleaming in the sun on Castle Meadow on Saturday!

Being a bit of a coach nerd, I spent a good five minutes drooling over this one. From the simply fantastic fleet of Parrys International, OU15AZM is a C48FT specification Euro6 Neoplan Starliner. Brand spanking new, the smart motor won Coach of the year at the 2015 UK Coach Rally at Alton Towers.

The coach is one of three purchased this year, and is the last ever right hand drive version of the type to be produced. Neoplan are to focus on the Tourliner model for the UK, in the same way Evobus have dropped the Setra brand to focus on sales of the Mercedes Benz Tourismo. The three Neoplans were purchased by Parrys alongside six VanHool TX17 Astons; Parrys have a policy of typically operating a coach for three holiday seasons before replacing them.
