Where Are They Now? ~ YN03WRL

Many of you will be aware that Ensign provides a dealership in addition to bus services in the Essex area. Ross Newman regularly provides reports to many enthusiast groups and the disposal list for December caught my eye.

Scania OmniCity YN03WRL in Gorleston High Street on 16th October 2012
Included in the report was the arrival of ex Anglianbus Scania OmniCity YN03WRL from Brighton based Southern Transit which was then sold to Valero Energy of Pembroke Dock. The Scania was new to Metrobus in August 2003 and subsequently moved to Anglian in September 2012 operating as 450 in the Suffolk based fleet.

As the photo shows, for a short time WRL operated with Anglian in London Red before a repaint in yellow and blue, which it retained for a while when with the Sussex based company. Imagine my surprise seeing it in Anglian livery in use on rail replacement heading for London on the A23!
