#TBT Throw Back Thursday ~ Cambus In Yarmouth

Another photo surfaces following the tidy up and this time it features a Cambus decker at the old Eastern Counties Wellington Road Bus Station.

Cambus VAH279X laying over at St Peter's Road Great Yarmouth with X21 Peterborough on the blind!
The subject in the photo is an Eastern Coach Works bodied Bristol VRTSL6G with the registration of VAH279X. It was new to Eastern Counties in September1981 as VR279, having been originally ordered by Alder Valley. Following the setup of Cambus in September 1984 it became their 749. Four years later it became part of the Viscount Bus and Coach fleet and subsequently received Stagecoach livery in January 1998

At the beginning of 2001 it was sold to Davies of Bettws Gwerfil Goch trading as GHA Coaches. It lasted there until November 2004 when it moved on to Pencoed Travel. January 2007 saw its last journey to PVS of Carlton for scrapping.

The history of VAH279X was obtained from Rob Sly's Bristol Commercial Vehicles website
