Brand New Atlantean

Kenneth Aveyard has supplied some great photos over the last few years but this one has to be one of the best. Plymouth City Transport 115 OCO115S only a couple of months old, is seen on loan to Leicester City. I believe it was so that Plymouth could try out one of Leicesters Dennis Dominators rather than Leicester being keen to trial an Atlantean.
