I had a ride on 19658 ( reg number WA60FHP 1375 miles on the clock ) today, from Paignton Bus Station to Torquay. First I went upstairs and have to report the seats were just as comfy as any other decker on the fleet. Later I sat down stairs and again the seats were OK, nothing like my earlier experience on a number 2. The seats across the back two rows are plastic so after the feet up on seats brigade have done their worse they can be easily wiped down. There are two seat right behind the door, great view of the road ahead and grand if you want to chat to the driver. (Please don't). The second shot is the carrying capacity, I make that a hundred and one passengers when full. The 3rd photo I took after I got of at Cary Parade and shows slight damage to the back nearside of the bus. Didn't occure while I was on the bus.
The buses have some connection with Marks and Spencer's, whether they have bought them outright or just contributed to the cost I am not sure. The 32 now runs all the way to the Willows when Marks and Sparks have a big store if you are wondering about the connection.
