Post A question about Dart's
I really love the old Dennis Dart's and their variants, like the Plaxton Pointer. I grew up on those.

But I have one question about them: what engine do they use?

Specifcally, what engine does this one use? For me, this sound is instantly recognisable, but finding the right information is proving difficult for me.

I know this same type of engine was also used on Alexander ALX series.

The Alexander ALX was a body that was fitted to a variety of different chassis so not every ALX is a Dennis Dart. The engine fitted to this bus is indeed a B Series coupled with an Allison AT545 gearbox.
