Oh Eights Oh Wow!

I spent the afternoon down at Marsh Mills taking photos of just about anything which caught my attention during the three hour stint. Plenty of interesting and useful photos taken but the real surprise was kept back to almost the end of the spell.

First Devon and Cornwall YJ08CFE

Brand new Volvo single decker bus for FDC! Certainly carries full FDC legal lettering so appears to be staying rather than just a loan? It would be good to see a few more of these down here in Plymouth but it remains to be seen where they end up.

Are there anymore out there?
