Continuing our Swift Taxis theme, one of their former vehicles features in this week's Throw Back Thursday in the form of an Ikarus 480 Citibus bodied DAF SB220 T826GSE

When with Swift, the DAF was given the name "Swift Owl" and received fleet number 106. The 43 seater was thought to have been originally registered T20JLS when delivered new to Leask of Lerwick in June 1999. It formed part of Swift's fleet up until around August 2007, when it left for Cooper's Tourmaster in Bedlington.

It later moved to Steel Group Investment of Dewsbury (SGI Buses) and subsequently to Station Coaches of Bately, West Yorkshire. It is still operated by them in its blue and white livery and is pictured on Flickr operating their 126 service in late October
