Where Are They Now? ~ T809LLC

First Plaxton President bodied Trident 32809 T809LLC first saw use in Great Yarmouth in early November 2017 after transfer from Norwich. It was needed to help cope with an increase in Bernard Matthews contract work in the lead up to Christmas. It was withdrawn the following February prior to returning to the city for use as a driver trainer during April 2018.

It then returned to Norwich for more driver training duties in January this year; although it was was immediately pressed into revenue earning service. Final withdrawal came in February after engine failure.
