Ex Local Coach Surfaces In Cyprus!

Observed on a Facebook group site yesterday was this run down looking Plaxton bodied Ford R192. The photo, taken in Cyprus earlier this month, was supplied by Paul Emery and is reproduced here with his consent

What has it to do with this area I hear you ask? Well the number plate disguises the fact that it is believed to be former NEX945J which used to operate with Norfolk Motor Services. Apart from being able to discover that the 45 seater was new to the company in April 1971, I can find no further information about it

Robert Kelly subsequently contacted me and says 'the body configuration was C45F and it stayed with Norfolk Motor Services until December 1977 before later going to Granville Tours.

My thanks to Paul for the use of the photo and to Robert for the later information
