Today's post is a selection of different interior shots I've gathered over the years. Interior shots are usually rarer (and harder to get) than exterior shots, but as modelling becomes more advanced and expectations become higher, perhaps the number of interior shots I take should increase. I hope these are of interest - especially to those people out of area who won't get a ride on these buses.
First Hants & Dorset Leyland Olympian 34810 (C410HJN) - this is a shot of the top deck looking backwards. As you can see, First reupholstered the seats before it entered service at FHD.
First Hants & Dorset Dennis Dart 40623 (M254VWW) - this bus came from Leeds and has red covered seats.
A shot from on board a moving 46366 (N466ETR), pictured in service heading for Stubbington on route 72.
BlueStar this time - and this is what will greet you if you ride on of the Scania Omnicitys on route 1 - this bus is 1127 (HF58KCC).
Now withdrawn and scrapped, here is 47306 (N606EBP) - one of 7 UVG Urban Star bodied Darts new to People's Provincial.
First Hants & Dorset Volvo B7TL/Wright Eclipse Gemini 37162 (HY07FSV) - a driver kindly let me board the bus while paused at Hedge End rail station back in 2007, and I was able to get photos of the then brand new buses. This shot is downstairs looking backwards.
I hope these are of interest - it is certainly interesting to see how older buses have the bench rows and the new buses have individual seats. I know I'd rather have the bench row, but for purposes of sitting next to a stranger, perhaps the individual seat is better.
