Life after Plymouth

A former Citybus open top Leyland Atlantean STK130T is currently being advertised for sale for £5000

Meanwhile another coach has left the Plymouth Citycoach fleet to join Southern Vectis:

Plymouth Citybus 309 JSK263

It is still in full red and white Citycoach livery and now carries its original registration R309STA so presumably JSK263 will soon reappear on one of the remaining coaches WA03MGE or WA03MGJ.
