Please note I am not connected with these sales.


Can anyone identify any of the vehicles? One looks like YIL 3196 (VAV161X) but I'm not sure.

The Tiger looks like XIL 8034, the Atlantean looks like NNO 66P and the liveried Olympian looks like PFM 128Y.

My guess is the same as harz99. At the risk of upsetting those of you still in full-time education, it won't be long until September.
(for those of more mature years, it might as well rain until then)

It's the "Gardner engined" AN68 that intrigues me. Not the most common modification...  ;)

Adam,

That is most definately YIL3196 ( VAV161X) -  I cannot count the number of times I have been on that over the years !    Service 4 to London,  1's,1A's, 5's,the 6 to St.Neots,  & also  taking me to school day in day out ! Good old motor, and almost worthy of preservation in my mind, but then I am biased !!! :)

Interestingly PFM 128Y has not been seen on 701 this week. Bristol VRT FKM 867V has been operating in its place.

The Scania/Berkhof is HIL 6457, the DAF Paramount TXI 2424 and the Volvo B10 Paramount is most likely YIL 3205.

Its no big secret that they lost out on the school contract tenders, time will tell if some are relinquished by the 'new' operators or assistance requested.

However...

I seem to remember chatting to one of the Emblings/Judds staff at Showbus 2008.

Now, if I remember rightly, I think I was told that all the VRs would have to be sold within the year as they were unsuitable for fitting the seat-belts which are increasingly demanded for schools' contract work.

Quote from: DfT
Legislation requires seatbelts to be fitted on minibuses and coaches, though not on buses, used to transport three or more children on an organised journey. Scheme organisers should be guided by parents' concerns and contract an appropriate vehicle. The general practice is to use buses on local journeys in urban areas and to hire coaches for school trips when a teacher is available to ensure that the seatbelts are used correctly.

Many local authorities now insist on vehicles with seat-belts.

Shame, as until the local authorities insist on the little darlings actually wearing them, they are a complete waste of time and money...

Agreed, it was nearly four years ago now that I was a passenger on a schoolbus. The vehicles used were S-BCE or R-DRP Olympians, and if we were lucky we got R581 JVA (!) which we had for about a month. After one idiot sitting upstairs smacked his head on a seatback when our bus was forced to do an emergency stop, his parents and several others complained to Stagecoach about the buses not being fitted with seatbelts. Therefore, for 2 months after that we had to suffer the L-HSG B10M's-which seated 55. Just what you need for a contract that requires a 75 seater. And no, no-one wore the seatbelts!

Ah, but that's at high schools and 6th-form colleges.

Primary school contracts carry a (CRB enhanced-checked) guardian/supervisor who checks that each tiddly-tot is securely strapped in and will report to parents and to schools if any child is un-co-operative.

The primary schools which I work with take behaviour on buses seriously and will contact parents even though, technically, the kiddie-winkies are beyond the school's (as distinct from the education authority's) responsibility on the bus.

Don't think its been mentioned in this thread but FAO418V went for use as a non PCV in Melbourn - as a bric a brac shop.    If anyone spots YIL3196 out & about please mention it on group - cheers.   I think it may have left Guyhirn now though.

YIL3196 still resides in the yard awaiting collection.

To set the record straight there are 4 VR's still in the fleet -

FKM 867V, AUD 460R, HAH 238V and open topper BKE 861T.
