|Great Yarmouth bound W422SRP in Leicester|
Deckers On Their
I was somewhat surprised to receive the following email from Neil Beasley this morning:-
'In the near future, Great Yarmouth is scheduled to received some Alexander ALX400 bodied Volvo B7TL double-deckers from Leicester.
The vehicles in question are:
32058 - W218 XBD 32059 - W219 XBD 32061 - W221 XBD 32062 - W422 SRP
32063 - W223 XBD 32064 - W224 XBD 32065 - W425 SRP
All of the vehicles were new to Leicester and will be ousted by 35 refurbished, former First London, 08 / 58 plate Enviro 400 bodied Tridents. The Enviro 400s started to be delivered to Leicester last week and here's a picture of one at Leicester's Abbey Lane depot
At the time of writing, Leicester has received 5 Enviro 400s and staff type training is still to take place.
W422 SRP played a role in the comedy "Little Britain". It was the bus used in the Vicky Pollard bus sketch and the bus had a trip to London for the day to do the filming'
My thanks to Neil for the email and to Russ for the image of W422SRP
