Verheul bodied AECs available for possible preservation

AEC Verheuls MZU 878 and KZU 452 formerly with O's Coaches, County Antrim are still in existence and may be available for preservation. They will require some considerable work as both have been subject to vandalism in the past. If you have any serious interest please contact me and I can put you in contact with the owner.

Weight of an AV590 engine

We are an association here in Luxembourg, owning a Routemaster bus (RM1180) and we also have a spare AEC engine, that we intend to put on a shelf in a garage. In order not to overload this shelf, we would need to know the weight of such an engine. Have you an idea about the weight of this engine? Thanks, Georges Feltz,
