Bus explodes in Stockholm

Sounds very odd for a bus or coach to have a petrol tank on the roof - anyone know whether such a thing exists?

I was under the impression that the strange aerodynamic pods on bus roofs were for gas cylinders (LPG gas, not gasoline).

Where have you seen that? I don't recall seeing any on any of the buses local to me - think they are all diesel.

Zwolse Den Oudsten B96 city bus on LPG. The gas is stored in two white tanks on the roof.

LPG is even more dangerous than petrol in a crash; this is why I have a diesel.

This sort of thing:

There are a few around here (I think I've seen them in Bath), but I've mainly seen them in other countries (perhaps simply a big city thing).

Sounds horiffic.

 

I also made a mistake. Think it was BNG rather than LPG. Here's a pic of what the bus looked like (you can translate story if you want).

Wow - look at this. Apparently they do have ethanol gas driven buses in Stockholm. Thankfully it appears that, by chance, it was empty.

 

 

 

 

Single deck bus.  Bridge must be low.  No bridge visible so did the driver continue through it or reverse?

That metal tower, halfway down the bus on the pavement, perhaps is a support for a low barrier to stop high vehicles driving underneath what appear to be tunnels under buildings???

Yes it looks like the bus didn't get as far as the actual tunnel otherwise the building above might have been set alight.
