|Brighton & Hove 925 Wright Streetdeck BX15 OMY at Newhaven|

I just don't think the Streetdecks are rugged enough to challenge for the major routes up and down the country. Obviously time will tell and I'll be going back down there in 6 months or so to see what they are like then. They may prove me wrong - I hope they do but I'm not confident. I asked the driver what the general impression was and he said not good. The cab is cramped and he noticed they didn't handle wind well.

The seats were comfortable and at last I think Alexander Dennis might have a decent product. Again I'll try them again in 6 months to see how they are lastng but I deliberately chose the route with the 64 reg MMC's which have been on the road a bit as opposed to the new 15 reg ones on the 415. Unfortunately Brixton was heaving when I got there and pics were hard to get and this is the only one I managed.
