I couldnt remember where all the posts were about Wrightbus still building Volvo B9TL Wright Gemini 2s or not and if any Dealer Stock remained, appears that perhaps they are as one is shown in the following link and is Dealer Stock.

Looks like its on a B9TL Chassis, with how short it is, would of looked better on a full size single decker chassis.

Half and half id say, Though the closed section does have the Sunroof Windows so suits all.

Bit of a more modern appearance over the Previous Optare Visionares that flood London though.

Noted at Heysham today ( 25th ) was Arriva's First Production Wright Streetdeck, Its destined for Arriva Kent ad Surrey.

First one to have gasket glazing windows too? I actually think it suits them better than full bonded glazing.

Just a trial at this stage like Arriva Midlands' Derby based FJ64 ETZ (although without it a non-Sapphire vehicle would need to be allocated to service 38) as opposed to a full batch order.

Streetdeck v Gemini 3.

Obviously the chassis and engine are different.
Apart from that, what are the differences between the two?
I've not had a go of the new batch of vehicles on the X9/10 yet, so haven't been able to judge/check for myself yet.

The x9/10 Gemini 3 are light and airy with nice big windows as against the x21 streetdeck which is a bit claustrophobic with their smaller windows.i would remove the tables and add extra seating.the Gemini 3 seems to bee more at ease at top speed were as the street deck seems underpowered.this is just my personal view.

I'm sorry, but the window arrangement on both buses - from what I can tell - is absolutely identical? 

I'm 99% sure that the bodies are identical. Similar to the Eclipse Solar vs Urban.

It feels a lot lighter with the windows on the Gemini 3 it’s just my experience of trying both routes.
