[IMAGE]Dattco-6-09-emailfull.jpg[/IMAGE] Dattco Inc. of New Britain, Conn., recently put three new Van Hool T2145s and a TD925 Double Deck coach into service. These coaches represent the final four deliveries of the ten units Dattco ordered from ABC Companies, Van Hool’s exclusive North American distributor, in 2009.

 

This order involved three C2045 charter coaches, two TD925 double deck coaches, three T2145 “Tour” class coaches and two T2145 “Dattco Experience” coaches. Both double decks and one each of the “charter” and “tour” class coaches are ADA-equipped.

 

Meanwhile, ABC Companies delivered a new Van Hool C2045 to Ark.-based Little Rock Tours. Equipped with a Ricon wheelchair lift, this represents the tenth full-sized coach operated by the luxury carrier.  

 

The coach is powered by a Detroit Diesel Series 60 engine coupled to an Allison B500 Gen 4 transmission. The custom designed interior includes Van Hool’s contoured parcel rack with a DVD player displaying six 22-inch LCD video monitors, Amaya Torino seats and the large rear passenger window.
