ADL don't think they're any different from earlier Trident chassis as
they have allocated them the same chassis number series.

Manufacturers frequently do updates to their chassis - I hardly think
that a change in the shape of fuel tank or a change in the chassis
length/overhang is a radical change, the Trident always had a choice of
lengths anyway - and as for engines, the buyer can specify from a choice
of engines so that hardly makes it special.

The bottom line is that the Trident is still a Trident whatever the
marketing people try to say it is. E400 is just an ADL body style.
