Where Are They Now ~ SMK717F

You may remember, that until September 2011, First Eastern Counties possessed a third Routemaster painted in non authentic Great Yarmouth Transport blue and cream

More recent information has come to hand on former London Transport RML2717 SMK717F since she was sold by First to a private buyer in Glasgow.

Subsequently, Dublin Buses acquired her and she was then later sold to Warrington Coach Sales. The RML then moved to to Bolton Coach Sales and is now in Thailand according to the Routemasters Society.

SMK717F has also been replicated in model form by Exclusive First Editions in 'Great Yarmouth Transport' colours and is currently being offered under mail order in the current issue of Buses magazine

My thanks to Ryan for bringing the information to my attention
