At last we have some vehicle news to tell you about. Firstly leyland Atlantean NDR509J "9" now 48 years old has been at Plymstock commercials for the last 6 months have major mechanical overhaul. We are very excited to announce she is back on the roads of plymouth after 33 years away. We had a test run around Plymouth on Sun 3rd feb and she performed amazingly, powering up some of plymouth's steepest hills. We thank the staff of Plymstock commercials for their knowledge and hard work.
We still have alot of work to continue with. But we hope to have it fit for passengers by the summer. Any help always appreciated when we organise the next stage of work
Next Leyland Olympian formerly 34812 C412HJN has passed its M.O.T and is currently with Car to Coach bodyworks being repaneled and repainted to its original Eastern National livery.Will put pictures up when available.
On a sad note Atlanean STK 133T after a M.O.T has left our shores for a new life in southern France or maybe even Africa. Bristol LH NFJ592M 19 has left the group but is nearer to home, being brought by Daniel Shears at Winkleigh and will restored back to western national era, at least we will be able to enjoy seeing her in the local area
Both East lanc Atlantean 168 and Bobby Darch's 1st generation dart 105 passed m.o.ts on 16th April, two more to be seen out on the road
Leyland AN68 131 passed its m.o.t 30th april. Owner Ian Byrne will now be getting it ready for its 40th birthday celebrations over the month or so.
