FE SoTD Spring 2010
« on: April 21, 2010, 03:36:05 PM »
34303 - L303PWR & 34305 L305PWR appear to have found some errors in the desty boards, displaying all sorts of weird and wonder things:




Also from the 8th but it is a daily occurrence for this to happen nearly! But 20102 was out on the X22's but again nothing new in that.

Here she is in Colchester heading Stansted and below in Clacton


Also 60117 was out on DT Duties which was nice to see :)

What's the yellow flashing beacon on top of 20102 for? I read somewhere it was something to do with Stansted

I personally cant answer this one but i suspect it is to do with Stansted Airport?

Not just Stansted, but any airport in the UK. Regulations say that any vehicle that goes onto the apron of a airport (where the aircraft manoeuvre) has to have a yellow flashing beacon on the roof for safety reasons. When the coach was new there was probably a good chance that it ended up working a few "direct to aircraft" services?? and they have just never bothered removing the beacon.
