Title: Army coaches
Post by: Julia_Hayward on May 24, 2012, 10:41:48 AM
As I work near the St James Park barracks, I often see coaches owned by the Army around - there appears to be a batch of B10M/Plaxtons with civilian Y-TLO registrations, not ones in the armed forces series. No secret that they are Army as they have large recruitment adverts all over them, but given how twitchy the security services can be I've never taken a picture or made notes within eyeshot of them! Is there anywhere where details such as a fleet list or chassis numbers are obtainable from?

It is very unlikely this information will not be available. You won't find the vehicle details on the DVLA either.

Hi Julia/Richard,

The closest you will get is the PSV Circle's British Journal (http://www.psv-circle.org.uk/bj.htm) publication, which provides quarterly updates. There is no list as such of these, but the Journal does provide some information.
