Query: Viceroy V384 NOA
« on: October 20, 2016, 12:01:59 pm »
I have been looking a photo I took in June 2004 of Viceroy V384 NOA, a Mercedes-Benz O 405N, which may be seen at: http://www.ipernity.com/doc/davidslater-spoddendale/43414108

Can anyone tell me its origin? Such a bus type with that 'OA' registration points to West Midlands Travel but 'Bus Lists on the Web' isn't showing anything.

I was wondering if it had a different registration when new.

Please don't quote me to it but think this was a cancellation of a order to Spain and one other ended up with James king in Dumfriesshire

According to PSV Circle publication G625 it was new with that registration in January 2000.

There is a suggestion somewhere (cannot remember where)  that it was the back end of a West Midlands order.

Nope, always V384 NOA according to BusView.
Incidentlly it has left in August 2015 to persons unknown, but does anyone on the Forum?

And no, it's not in the drive here at Casa De Suzy... partially as we don't have a drive.... lol
