Alexander Midi-buses

Post  anorakman on Thu Apr 29, 2010 8:12 am

Apart from the shortened Y-type on, say, an Albion Viking chassis, did Alexander build anything before the ALX200 came on the scene?

First Eastern Counties had one Alexander bodied B6 at Ipswich depot. It was totally shagged. The gearbox clunked noisely, it could barely get up hills and it rattled like hell!! Fortunately it vanished after a while.

Saying that I did like driving the Plaxton Pointer Volvo B6s. They were much more manuvarable than the low floor Darts, espcially round some of the tight spots ther are in Ipswich.

The dash is esentially a piece of shit in my opinion.
