Western Greyhound Darts

It has always amazed me that Western Greyhound have never had any Dennis Darts in their fleet, when they are by far the most popular single deckers out there (by popular I mean sheer numbers sold). They did have a few on loan from Stagecoach after last years fire which must have made a reasonable impression at least.

Three Dennis Darts have now joined WG to replace buses lost in last weeks fire at Liskeard: NA52AWJ, NA52AWP and KN52NFO

The three Varios destroyed by the fire are confirmed as 568/575/582

Public Transport Experience: When remonstrations from domestic authorities challenged the wisdom of so much beckside time with occasional wet feet and muddy frocks, the girls announced that they had been playing with the fairies.
