Sunday Best: TTT172X

The Wilts and Dorset connection started years ago


As soon as I saw this posting by Ian I knew it had to appear here...

Plymouth Citybus had three Olympians but the didn't stay long. All three were sold to Stevensons, Uttoxeter before going to Solent BlueLine and then Wilts and Dorset (at least I think that’s the sequence?). Not sure where they went after that though.
Of course the traffic is now more likely to be the other way round with Optare Solos due to come to Plymouth from the Go-Ahead South Coast fleets later this year, although how long before any of these hit the roads remains to be seen...
As always, I encourage you to visit Ians Flickr pages to see more great shots like this
