Metroline Brentford Garage [AH]... First ever Metroline Volvo B9TL Gemini 2

VW1034 LK59JJU
With the demise of Metroline's distinguishable Blue and White skirt in May 2009 all new Metroline Buses are being delivered in a bland Red livery. Which is a far cry from from the cool blue that we were used to seeing. Recently Metroline started taking on the delivery of Wrightbus Gemini 2 bodied vehicles with a Volvo B9LChasis (VW) for the 237 contract which was retained by Brenfrod Garage (AH) a first for the company in the Wrightbus region of the Bus market. Metroline normally stick to the Alexander Dennis Enviro type (TE). I like a lot of Bus enthusiasts was excited by the news of this as I really do prefer the Wright body as opposed to the Enviro 400 body. So on monday the 15th of February 2010 I decided to take a trip down to Brentford Garage as I had heard news that one had been delivered.

The Buses like all new Metroline Buses delivered from May 2009 onwards are limited to 39mph and have stickers on the rear of the Bus to clearly designate that. They also have steel plated fuel caps as well as rear LED Lighting. Another feature the Buses have is Power Blinds.

Power Blinds are a relatively new type of blind that are more advanced than traditional Manual Blinds. They allow the driver to change the destination blind of the vehicle electronically. They are also brighter,clearer and have a longer lasting life. The only downside to this is vehicles delivered with power blinds often have to have different blinds for other garages in case of vehicle cascading as they are harder to remove.
