Tamar Link buses

The final Tamar Link picture for today. S764RNE is a low floor Dennis Dart MPD
Interestingly this bus started life with Springfield Coachways of Wigan being used on a tendered service (664/674) which when Springfield folded, First Manchester acquired both the vehicles and the service. After re-tendering of the route, the vehicle then moved to First PMT at Chester. Not quite sure when it arrived down here but it was a couple of years ago I think. It has just been painted in the Tamar Link pink livery although here it is operating on a local Plymouth service which goes nowhere near Torpoint. This morning it was running to Ivybridge which is in the opposite direction leaving Plymouth. Makes you wonder why they bother painting it up if they cant get it on the right route.
