History:

This batch of 21 was new to Abellio in 2016 for route C10. Following the retention of the route with new Caetano e-City Golds in 2020, the batch was displaced.

5 moved to TF to provide spares during the pandemic, 2 were put up for sale and the remaining 14 were eventually sold to Go-Ahead.

3 out of the 5 at TF were withdrawn in summer 2021 and subsequently sold to Sullivan Buses. In early 2022, those that had been put up for sale returned to London service at Abellio TF.

Those still at Abellio are used as general spares at TF, and can appear on any of their routes allocated longer single decks.

The batch have 5 Speed Allison T2100 gearboxes.
