Open Top Loan

First Great Yarmouth has taken delivery of an ex Arriva London open top bus in the shape of London Sightseeing Tours LJ51 DKN. The Plaxton bodied DAF arrived at Caister Road during yesterday evening and was new to Arriva London North in September 2001 as their DLP61.

The bus now forms part of the Original London Sightseeing tour fleet as their DLP261 and is usually based at Wandsworth in south west London. It has been loaned to First to provide additional cover during peak demands for their open top 1C service. I understand it is to become 35014 in the fleet and receive temporary cabriolet branding in the near future
