125 STK125T has been purchased as planned and is now part of the group will be rallied in Essex currently is licensed. Eventually will be restored to dual door livery undecided currently owned by Paul Paske

170 TTT170X is in the process of being purchased by Jason Beverley from Ralph Deldridge to allow him to concentrate on his other ongoing projects. Should be complete by 31st March deliberately avoiding 1st April date. 170 will this year go into full starsky and hutch Citybus livery with Royal Navy names to differentiate it from 168 which will go black red and white and 171 which currently is retaining as withdrawn livery.
