A study of Route One's vehicle database yesterday revealed some items available for disposal by two local operators.

Reynolds of Caister is advertising the availability of its Mercedes Benz Tourismo BX55FYO. The 49 seater was acquired from Clarkson of South Elmswell in April 2011; they purchased it new in January 2006. It was subsequently named Lady Emma Grace by Reynolds.

AFSC Limited, trading as Marett's Chariots, have two vehicles available for sale - Mercedes Benz Vario VX54CKJ and Ford Transit YK61UGE. The Merc was previously with Field of Aylmerton whilst the Transit was bought new by the company as YK61UHG in December 2011. The latter is being sold off due to the loss of a contract.

Since the preparation of this post, Robert Kelly has contacted me to say that Reynolds has three coaches available for disposal on their website. In addition to BX55FYO, the operator is also selling the other Tourismo BU04FAJ which it acquired from Bennett of Hayes End in 2010. The third of the trio is former Kent County Council Volvo B10M ICZ6697

My thanks to Grahame for the use of the photo of BX55FYO and to Robert for the information.
