Updated Information

[Arriva London]

DW545 - LJ13CFG - now in service on route 67 from Tottenham Garage [AR].

[First] - The new hydrogen powered hybrid single decker, which started in service on 17th May, is different from the previous models as it is an integral Wrightbus chassis and body, whereas WSH62991-WSH62995 had VDL chassis and Wrightbus bodies. The chassis number follows on from the chassis number for WHY13.

Body & Number: Wrightbus Pulsar H - AB888
Seating: B34D+10
Unladen Weight: 11350kgs

Note that the standing capacity has been reduced, due to the higher unladen weight.
