Stagecoach Manchester held a ‘Farewell to the B10M’ event on Saturday (November 14) – when the last two Volvo B10M buses in frontline service were formally withdrawn.

Appropriately, the pair – 20982 and 20983 – ran extras on service 192 between Hazel Grove, Stockport and Manchester.

All fares collected on the vehicles were donated to Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention,  Stagecoach Manchester’s charity of the year.

Seven Alexander PS-types and four Northern Counties or Plaxton examples remain in Stagecoach Manchester’s driver training fleet.
