Another one bites the dust

Plymouth Citybus 409 left Milehouse for the last time today – towed off for scrap.

So in time honoured tradition Plymothian Transit brings you a few photos of her days in service…

409 retained this livery, to the end. She was withdrawn from service back in 2017. She was initially donated to All Saints Academy, only to be reacquired for removal of any useful parts back in May this year.

  1. As much as I never liked the buses, itll be a shame to see these go. They've been around for what feels like forever

  2. Talking of biting the dust, these former CityBus and First Buses are pictured, among others, in the Bus graveyard at Winkleigh here https://www.flickriver.com/groups/1311663@N25/pool/random/
