A splash of yellow appeared on the Virgin Trains livery when the Berkhof coaches on the Milton Keynes - Luton link service were replaced by Plaxton bodied B10Ms which originated with Cumberland Motor Services. Volvo 52332 (6253VC) took the registration from one of the Berkhofs, it was originally N130VAO. It was also the coach to be shown at SHOWBUS international in 2003. The coach is seen here in December 2003 awaiting service for Luton outside Milton Keynes Railway Station. The Dunn-Line coach behind is one of many coaches at the Station at the time for Rail Replacement duties.

A coach attracting much attention at SHOWBUS in 2005 was this Volvo B12B with Caetano coachwork operated on behalf of Virgin Trains by National Express. NXVC3 (FH05URP) was purchased for another rail-link service, but this time the route linking Watford Junction Station with Heathrow Airport. These full sized coaches replace the Plaxton Cheetah bodied Mercedes midicoaches used previously.

Displaying its rear aspect, same coach on the same day is seen on stand in Heathrow's Coach Station. The VT98 route number is used for the Watford service. Alongside is another National Express coach in a slightly unusual NX livery for another rail-link service, this time to Woking. The Plaxton bodied B10M was new to Cambridge Coach Services as 322 (S322VNM).
