PSJ 825R is an Ailsa with an unusual VanHool McArdle body. VanHool McArdle was an Irish subsidiary of Belgian VanHool, set up to build bus bodies mainly for CIE, the Irish state transport company. However a large batch of bodies was built on Ailsa chassis for South Yorkshire PTE and a further two were built for A1 Service in Ayrshire. Delivered with dual doors as shown in the photo below, it was later converted to single door. After service with A1 it spent time in West Yorkshire prior to entering preservation.
