Help to identify this coach
« on: October 14, 2013, 09:28:29 am »
I quickly snapped this photo in Bury St Edmunds on Saturday 12 October but didn't log any details. Is it a Talisman vehicle carrying the old pre-Motts 'Crusader Holidays' livery?

Can anyone expand this for me and give the registration number(s) it has carried?

Many thanks
David

G103CJN , I believe it is one of two ( elderly ) Coaches owned privately by the Guy who owns Talisman Coaches . From time to time they do go out on Talisman ' Discs ' on work or a Tours etc .

A Van Hool Alicron Royale T815 intergal built 1990 , with MAN running units etc .

This is its original ( from new ) registration , as delivered to Staines , Crusader Holidays , Clacton on Sea in February-1990 who had a batch of 4 of these Coaches G101 to 104CJN

I also photographed this in Bury , Saturday , circa 1630 hrs , so I guess we were there at similar times . I was round by the Bus Station exit road , doing my shots .

Thanks for all that information Andrew. I couldn't even make out the registration from my shot.

You must have been one of the two photographers I gave a wave to as I drove out of the bus station on the 1620 Mulleys service M55!
