One of the latest buses in full swoops is 480 PK02RFF
Richard Smith managed to get a couple of photos in red before the swoops:
And then a couple out in service, looking very smart
and then I managed one as well
Cracking photos. Good to see some reliable Double Decks with PCB, and they're just infinitely more powerful than the B7' s. Interestingly, 480 was the only one not to enter service in BH livery , so it's only just started its life on the road!!
That is interesting. Does anyone know what's in the spray shop? Is it 486?
No....486 is (or was) at Hants and Dorset Trim for refurbishment.
Apparently was an E400 being tested on the Torpoint Ferry the other day too?
