TransBus ALX400 – Regional
I’ve included repaint templates for you all to have a go at and included Xelabus as one of your in-game options. There will be tons of repaints (and mods) available on Fellowsfilm so don’t think for a minute that you’re going to have to settle for just one.
To keep 3rd party file use to a minimum I have kept the ALX fairly simple. This means that I’ve only included the flip-dot matrix display, my own previously recorded engine sounds, a simple 4-speed Voith transmission and a new ticket machine. Some files and work were still needed from others and those credits go to the following people:
Additional scripting by Roadhog
Additional sounds by Badger
Edits to LED matrix scripts by DVA_MEKA18 Projects
Default scripts by M&R
This bus is by far my favourite one to drive in OMSI 2 and I hope you have a lot of fun with it too. I look forward to seeing those that like to stream or make YouTube videos of it.
The ALX400 body first entered the UK market in 1996, built originally by Walter Alexander, as one of the UK’s first low-floor bus designs.
Alexander was owned at the time by the Mayflower corporation (Which included Dennis), and merged in 1998 with the Henlys Group (Which owned Plaxton) to form TransBus International. In 2004 it went into administration and Plaxton was sold off in a management buy-out. The remainder of the business was purchased by merchant bank Noble Grossart and businessmen David Murray and Brian Souter, which became Alexander Dennis Ltd. In 2007 ADL purchased Plaxton, bringing the original brands back together again.
Though the ALX 400 saw it’s biggest success’ in London, many examples of it can be seen all over the UK and in a variety of formats such as with the DAF DB250 and Volvo B7TL platforms. Production of the ALX 400 continued until 2006 when it was superseded by the new Enviro 400.
Version 2 Changes – Tops Off
Two open-top variants join the pack, perfect for those warm days by the coast. These are loosely based off Stagecoach South West’s “Hop 122” branded Tridents.
