NORTHCORD UKBUS6527 Stagecoach North Scotland Alexander Dennis Enviro400MMC.
New in early 2019. 11173 is one of fifteen new Alexander Dennis Enviro400MMC SmartHybrid doubledeckers deployed at Macduff depot for service 35 (Aberdeen-Banff / Elgin) by April 2019. 1173 carries a colourfully branded livery for service 35, heading to Macduff, and onto Aberdeen. Such unique feature of the special, comprehensive livery and branding are 100% reproduced onto the model. The stand-out features of the branding are : big "SERVICE 35" and "GET A BONNIE VIEW / FAE THE TOP DECK" lettering together with an icon illustration on both sides, along with key locations served "35, ABERDEEN, BANFF , ELGIN" on both sides’ upper deck windows. Further branding on each side includes : "TOP UK DEPOT FOR ECO DRIVING MACDUFF 2016 2017 2018 2019". The wording on the main side, upper panels within the advert frames is phrased with reference to the "Doric", the famous and iconic dialect associated with the north-east of Scotland. The one-piece casting whose clean lines accentuate the square, gasket-mounted windows and the livery application on which all logos and lettering are clearly legible and the single tree protector at the front complete the external feature with the front dome's curved windscreens on both upper deck and lower deck. The interior of both saloons feature the outstanding layout of the Enviro400MMC, such as the extensive portrayal of handrails on upper deck and lower deck, etc.
