Shows that AL look after their PVL's mechanically, shame its got a faded paint job
Some of the older PVLs are faster than most new buses. PVL190 was a good one, don't know what happened to that.

TA648 of W is a decent bus. I had it on the 210 a few nights ago and oddly when the driver used the kickdown, it was going all the way up to the redline at 2500rpm before upshifting. It doesn't even have the dash gear selectors. Going up that hill in Archway, it made light work of it . From a standing start at the bottom, it was running at around 2200rpm in 3rd, ~30mph most of the way and maintained that until reaching the top. Very impressed I must say, although the engine delivers less power once it gets above 2200rpm.
