From what I heard. Saltmedows did the work. I'm guessing whoever owns it thought to add them seats or maybe there was another reason

I didn't notice the interior to be honest, but totally agree its immaculate. It's the first time I'd seen it since being restored.

The owner has done a superb job with it.

Did it not have dp seating from new?
Struggling to remember what that one was like inside.
Either way, looks cracking.

I'm not 100% sure I think johnsons of redfern had it before it was preserved but cant remember the seating. I know the other expresslink vehicle C522LGR had those seats.

Found some images of it. Unfortunately this is the clearest I can see the interior. https://www.flickr.com/photos/ten6083/44074689781 Winlaton based and bench seats. Can't find anything earlier than this.

Here's an earlier view - again with bench seats.  Reatins NBC branding so cant be more than a few years old here?
