Applegates Coaches

Ex Brighton Scania P876VFG is flanked by Olympian J839TSC and Volvo YXI9253
This morning I visited the depot of Applegates Coaches of Newport in Gloucestershire. The company operates day trips and holidays with a variety of vehicles

When visiting the office I was greeted by a very friendly lady who had no problems with me looking around the premises and taking photos

Applegates also operates deckers on school journeys including two former Brighton buses still in their former owner's colours. They were Scania N113DRB/ East Lancs 78 seaters registered P875VFG and P876VFG.

Applegates were also operating a Jonckhere Monaco bodied MAN 24.350 
Also present was another decker J839TSC in all over yellow; this Leyland Olympian was new to Lothian in August 1991

Another impressive vehicle was T38BBW a MAN 24.350 with Jonckheere Monaco CH68FT bodywork

She previously worked with Stagecoach Western Scotland as their 50038; spending some time operating out of Ayr

For further details of this operator please refer to their website
