UKB8018 Hedingham Enviro200
UKBUS8018 HEDINGHAM ADL Enviro200.
Creative Master Northcord released this Alexander Dennis Enviro200Dart UKBUS8018, utilising the 10.7m long wheelbase model with gasket windows to represent the distinctive modern single-decker in the United Kingdom, that carries Hedingham and District standard red and cream livery.
UKBUS8018 represents Hedingham & District Omnibuses fleet number L370 (EU58 JCJ).
Hedingham and District commenced operations on 4th June 1910, with a fleet of eight buses, two Crossley double-deckers and six single-deckers of Bedford and AEC manufacture. Over the past 50 years, the fleet has grown to just over 100 vehicles, mostly of Volvo and Dennis manufacture.
The Alexander Dennis Enviro200 UKBUS8018 is a one-piece casting whose clean lines accentuate the square-mounted, bonded windows and the livery application on which all logos and lettering are clearly legible.
Creative Master Northcord is creating new design standards in the layout of the interior in this replica. These features inside the compartment represent the really outstanding layout of the Enviro200, such as the additional seats on the wheel arch on the offside, and extensive portrayal of handrails in the compartment.
Further contrast with 50 years ago is provided by the vehicles themselves. Instead of second-hand acquisition, Hedingham & District Omnibuses fleet additions are predominantly new and predominantly for local bus services. Hedingham & District Omnibuses has acquired brand new Alexander Dennis Enviro200 Darts and Enviro400s in the last couple of years.
