Looks like Sanders have made a bit more effort than Lynx have for the Coasthopper

Well sort of - the buses were those colours when purchased. But I agree the vinyls are pretty.....

Thanks to 'return2leyerroad' on Flickr, I can confirm that 501-502 are normal liveried Sanders vehicles. The missing Coasthopper is 511 HF54 HHM. Sanders have also bought two more that have yet to enter service. They are HF54 HGA/HGC and are expected to become 513/514 but not necessarily in that order.
