Re: Re: 1178/1179 - They are excellent.


I see an inconsistency in data..... if you have bodynr. den Oudsten-5880 and chassisnr. 505405, then you indeed have Nefkens 48. This bus was registered in the Netherlands with 89-29-NB. Or do you have paperwork showing that your registration in NL was 30-09-PB?

Are there any plans to restore one of the busses to the initial Nefkens layout? That would really be something!!! Seat layout for both busses was: 32seats, 48 standing places.

1178/1179 - We may have wrong reg numbers

Dear Harald:

Your comments have me puzzled.

We got our information from some of your colleagues in the Netherlands and not having any knowledge took them as gospel.However when in the depot over the weekend I will check the body numbers but I do remember when I drove her across on the ferry from the UK, I had a small problem with customs as we could not find any chassis plate.They told me take her anyhow as they know the museum but it does raise an interesting question.

Do you have any idea where the body plate usually is on those machines?

I will try again and report back here on the discussion board but help as to where the plate is would be appreciated.
