#TBT C75CHM

Many of the followers of the blog are avid Leyland Olympian fans so I thought today I would make an Olympian the subject of today's Throw Back Thursday

Olympian C75CHM at Riverside Road in Norwich during June 2008 having worked into the city on the 122 route
C75CHM was new to London Transport in June 1986 entering service at Plumstead as L75. On privatisation, in late 1994, it became part of  the Stagecoach Selkent fleet and was subsequently sold to Ensignbus, still awaiting collection in May 2000

Holt based Sanders Coaches acquired the ECW bodied decker in January 2002 and there is a photo of CHM in Sanders livery on Flickr. By September 2006 it had passed to Anglian of Beccles and lasted in service with them until 2008

There is also a reported sighting on the excellent Iain's Bus Stop website of C75CHM in use as a mobile home in Norwich during August 2009
