VRA124Y
« on: August 24, 2009, 04:29:39 PM »
Reading my new Buses mag, it is reported that the above ex Derby/Chester Leyland Olympian is now a mobile home in Cambridgeshire. Has anyone seen it, or know where it is?

This was at Over carnival in July, carrying Helms of Eastham/Aintree Coachlines group livery, but I do not know where it is based.

This has been seen recently in the Cambridgeshire village of Over it appeared to have had some seats removed and benches and partitions fitted so looks to be being used for non PSV use.

It was previously seen in Cottenham on the road run in April 2011 so has been around this area for some time https://www.flickr.com/photos/mr-bg/5629236394/in/photolist-2iLWzMD-2cX1LRf-G2ccXj-KPrbZm-Xk73EM-Fw2GBF-FvR8nq-eufmxQ-E5p8Li-8xKrHR-239HVbe-2khqAnA-iobkq9-fdaZZz-dPyLLy-i9RRX8-pnjFti-2fgURsi-cqqNnG-j3yaNk-2etPUzY-FhYKHm-fqymCD-jiZwkV-2iBaiNj-VQNuTt-GSU2pZ-9zriRU-CoePa  Anyone know who owner is and what its being used for?
