New SLF Type buses for TNSTC-Tirunelveli

Few months back TNSTC-Madurai has added close 30-40 SLF type buses built on TML chassis. These buses looked like JNNURM AshLey SLF buses and had bucket(Marcopolo model) seats, digital boards etc., They charged SLF fare and they were added to some important routes in madurai.
Inline with this, yesterday to our big surprise, we saw a new bus similar to it was moving towards Tirunelveli from Madurai with TNSTC-Tirunelveli stickers. Fit and finish was good similar to Madurai version and good thing is that these are built in AshLey Viking chassis. Waiting to see them with jazzy stickers and running in Nellai/Nagercoil.
