It will then be expected at Exeter services around 13.15 and leave there at 14.15. It will then take the coast road to Plymouth expected to arrive in the city for the first time in many years around 16.30.

  1. Awesome
    On an updating note. On the Fleetlist, is shows 18 as in the paintshop, well, it must of a been a minor touch up, because 18 is on the road today in the same livery it was in.

  2. Do you know if this bus will be staying at milehouse bus depot? I'm having a look around the depot next week and would like to take a picture or her

  3. I understand the Crossley has been taken to the PCTG depot at Colebrook.

  4. Looks to be in stunning condition. I hope it got back to Plymouth successfully.
