Its the second time recently that one of that company's fleet has gone up in smoke.

 

Is their maintenance not upto scratch, are they running them into the ground and overheating them, or were they sold a dud-batch of the model type? Who knows!

Considering the pictures all show the same make & model of bus, I think it's how they where built. I hope translinks ones (as metro has loads!) don't go up in flames.

Reasons why these type of buses go on fire is the B7 Engine runs so hot that if a hydraulic hose splits which happens from time to time it only takes seconds for it to go up 2944 was a casualty to that type of fire and is now scrap.
