A new look for LT52WTN
More On First Kernow Open Topper

Following Saturday's post concerning the conversion of a former First Great Yarmouth President into an open-topper, I have been provided with more information by Marc MorganHuws who is the Business Director for First South West.

He tells me that 32207 (LT52WTN) will be one of nine such buses specially converted for use on four Atlantic Coaster routes. These are the all year round Service 1 between Penzance and Lands End plus the 17 connecting Boscaswell and St Ives. The other two are the 57 from Newquay to St Ives and the 300 St Ives to Lands End seasonal routes.

Marc has also provided additional photos which may be of interest including a couple showing what the new livery will look like.

The above photo shows the final livery on one of the closed toppers 33177 (LR02LYW) and also provided is a picture of what the front looks like as well.

Finally I would like to express my thanks to Marc MorganHuws for his help with this article and for the supply of photos.
