A brace of rare tri-axle Dennis Dragons is still being operated by Bedfordshire-based Landmark Coaches – and definitely have their followers. The buses are from a batch of 20 Dragons new to Stagecoach Kenya between November 1996 and December 1997 with Duple Metsec bodies. They were imported to Britain between 1998 and 2000 receiving UK registrations; some were used on Megabus services but all ended up on Stagecoach Manchester’s Magic Bus services in Manchester before passing to Ensignbus for sale around 2010.

Landmark Coaches’ Dennis Dragons definitely have their fans. NICK LARKIN
