Earlier this week we were contacted by Simon Kirby of well known Essex operator Kirby’s Coaches of Rayleigh. Due to a sale falling through he had an urgent requirement for a Euro 6 Mercedes Tourismo. It just so happened that we had access to this 2014 model which was ready to go. Being a long time Setra operator the Tourismo is a natural progression for Kirby’s and this one will fit right in to the fleet. It’s fitted with 49 Luxline Seats trimmed in Half Leather, 3 Point Seat Belts, Wood Effect Floor, and 8 Speed Powershift Gearbox. The Coach will be used on a variety of work including Kirby’s own extensive day excursion and tour programme. Thanks to Simon and Karen of Kirby’s for their purchase, and to Steve Orchard of S O Coaches in Manchester for releasing the vehicle at such short notice.
