Dudley, West Midlands-based operator Dunwood Travel has taken delivery of its latest two Scania coaches with a third, a high specification Scania Irizar i8 tri-axle model, on order due for delivery in May.

Equipped with Irizar i6 bodywork, the two delivered vehicles are based on Scania K 360 IB4x2 chassis featuring Scania’s 360hp Euro 6 engine and fully automated Opticruise gear selection system.

The two Scania Irizar i6 coaches are equipped with 53 reclining seats, half-leather trim, three-point seatbelts, centre sunken toilet, drinks machine, DVD player, two monitors and climate control air-conditioning.

Commenting on the new coaches, Dunwood Travel Director Phil Westwood said: “We have been so pleased with our current Scania Irizar i6’s that when it came to ordering new coaches the decision was an easy one. The service levels we receive from everyone, both Scania and Keltruck West Bromwich is exceptional, nothing is too much trouble.

“We collected the new coaches from Scania’s premises in Worksop and were so pleased with the presentation of the coaches that we immediately placed an order for a range-topping Scania Irizar i8 for delivery next month.”
