Former ECOC 54CPW On Ebay

An Anglia and Thames Valley Bus Forum member has posted that former Eastern Counties LFS54 54CPW is available for sale on Ebay with a starting price of £3,500

The decker was at one time based at Great Yarmouth's Wellington Road depot and I was lucky to find a photo of it on Flickr. The picture was taken in Caister on a sunny August day in 1981 by Claire Pendrous. At the time, the Bristol Lodekka FS5G was the second oldest bus in the Eastern Counties fleet.

Dating from July 1963, the bus is being offered for sale at £5000 and, not surprisingly, it has attracted no offers. It is in poor condition with no seats, having seen previous use as a caravan. Restoration to a satisfactory standard is expected to take a considerable amount of money
