"I never did like this livery but…”

I never did like this livery but I have to admit it does sit on the East Lancs bodywork rather well. Sadly it didn't really suit the older Park Royal Atlanteans as much. Nice to see the livery again though. More of preselected photos on his Flickr page

  1. Fascinating, given the competitive state of Plymouth's buses today (well, soon). Here we have a Joint Services working on the 57 that was once WN's but under PJS moved to the Corporation.

    The blind says "via Plymouth, Yelverton". It had to operate via Yelverton but via Plymouth indicates it originated somewhere outside the city (i.e. cross-city). Was that so? Or just the driver winding up the wrong information?

  2. It originated in Bretonside.
    The only bit of the blind with Yelverton on it was with the "via Plymouth" bit, so the driver didn't have much choice in what he could show.
