You always want to see brand new buses at a launch if you can get to one. That was me last Saturday I went to the launch in Eastbourne of Brighton and Hove's new Coaster Buses for the 12,12A and 12X. The bus is a Wright Streetdeck with a new style front end.
The bus that was at the launch was a Streetdeck that hadn't entered service yet. The Bus featured was 941 ( BX15 ONT ) and was named Eric Ravilious.
My main highlight was me sitting in the Drivers seat to test it out. They were even giving out free Ice Cream and Cupcakes as well. The event was well packed with loads of people trying out the new bus.
Now onto my photos of it:
My first photo is of BX15 ONT'S rear like some Wrights I tend to photo the rear as well as the front
