From here it passed to Der Blickfang, Hannover, Germany (dealer), then to The Kelley Family in 1993. Used by them until 2007, when it was donated to the Museum at Speyer.

This appears to have quite an interesting career! Rebuilt (possibly from a single deck vehicle) in 1961 and fitted with an Alexander body, H35/32R by the Scottish operator, Alexander, and allocated fleet number RB245, registration RMS 477, one of 17 such rebuilds. Alexander reclassified it as a Leyland Titan PD3/3C. It is listed in various places as originally being either a Leyland PS1 or an OPS2/1. It did enter preservation in the UK, and was used in Geneva as a homeless shelter and, in later years, a cafe.

Warum gibt es keine neuen Bilder mehr aus Vorarlberg? (unterland)

Vor allem wegen Corona. Da bleibt man wohl am besten im eigenen Land.

Weiss jemand etwas über dieses zweite Fahrzeug? Ich habe das noch nie gesehen und kannte damals alle Tsg-Busse. Der linke Bus hat ja bereits den Tsg-Anstrich.

das sollte wohl ein MCI 96/102 A3 sein.

Returning back to the UK, it was later reported in Texas, USA.

Definitely parked that there!!
RIL 1028 (or F241 TBC as it was registered when new) was "my" coach at this time. A Van Hool Alizee C51Ft bodied Volvo B10M-60, new in 1989.
Built to a basic specification, with single glazed windows, forced air ventilation and a toilet/servery, Scarlet Band Coaches only bought it with the intention of using it on UK tours for 1 year. As can be sen, it was still operating on the Continent at 11 years of age! Quite a reliable workhorse, it could be sent anywhere in Europe without any worries! Unlike modern vehicles, it didn't have a computer controling things!!
