Former FEC S116JTP on Ebay

At the beginning of this year Grahame reported that three former Yarmouth Volvo B10BLE Wright Renowns, then recently withdrawn, had made their way to a new home with First Devon & Cornwall.

Ex First Southampton S116JTP in Gorleston High Street on 4th November 2014
Among the trio was 66126 S116JTP which spent an amount of time operating from Caister Road depot. It  was new to First Southampton in August 1998 where it received fleet number 116. The saloon had its engine rebuilt in June last year and spent a short period on loan to Lowestoft in December 2012

Imagine my surprise then, that just after six months use, it has turned up for sale on ebay with an asking price of  £2,600 'straight from service'. With only five days to go there has yet to be any bids lodged. The item can be viewed HERE



  1. It won't go into preservation at that price!

    Preservationists generally only pay scrap value, and for a single decker at the moment thats about £600 to £800......

  2. But did you see the "other items" a Plaxton beaver !! f/n 52526 bet that's done a few lol no vat if you export lol Does Norfolk count as exporting I wonder !
