What service are they planning on using the speedboat on?
Never ask a dustman to talk shop.
He will only talk a load of rubbish!

They've won the emergency service contract for when the misguided busway floods you see!

Ex-LT ECW Oilycans C122CHM and D126FYM have been sold to Tees Valley Coaches in Hartlepool.
I believe the G-TCD Oilys left a while ago - they only have ex - Excel of Stansted (and still in Excels old pre TGM livery) NC bodied Oily B74PJA now.

Incorrect- G704/710TCD and F605MSL are still in the fleet and are all repainted, as is B74PJA which is mentioned. They had L122 and L126 advertised for sale in the trade press recently, I looked at L122 with a view to buying it for restoration to original LT condition but it was not for me- an odd addition to Tees Valley's fleet though.
