North east Manchester-based coach operator Mostonian 2000 has boosted its fleet with the acquisition of a 2011-registered Van Hool Altano T917 from Arriva Bus & Coach.

Powered by a Euro 5 MAN engine, the 13m coach seats 59. It includes all the refinements one would expect on such a vehicle, including a WC, air-conditioning and hot water boiler, as well as a glass roof.

Collected by Mostonian 2000 on Thursday (June 29), the coach has previously been operated by Cumbrian firm Reays of Wigton.
