Carousel Buses Leyland Olympian
Olympian L554 (H554GKX) again arriving at Heathrow Central Bus Station in July 2004 on the newly launched A40 service along the A40 trunk road from High Wycombe to Uxbridge and hence to Heathrow. The service replaced, in part, the withdrawn facility provided via Slough to the airport on the joint Arriva/Beeline 74 route. The A40 route was initially worked by the Carousel Olympian fleet supplemented by the odd Lynx and - it is thought - Metrobus.
 
Carousel Leyland Olympian
Newly painted from Armchair's orange and white livery is this all Leyland Olympian on the 400, heading from High Wycombe's Handy Cross for Bourne End. The 'KX' registrations of these buses are now appropriately 'at home' in Buckinghamshire.
