Excellent stuff Dennis, what a beast!!

I take it that there's a place near Dinnington called Wales? Either that or she's on one hell of a route.  :D

Interesting to note the name on the last picture.  Were any other VRs named after characters from "The Herbs"??

Strange mix of names on the VRs (none of the RELLs/RELHs carried names) as follows:

CPU979G - 'Good King Henry' - This was in Eastern National green livery

AET184T - 'Pashani Bedhi' - Bradfield Bus livery

XAK908T - 'Midge' - Bradfield Bus livery

DWF192V - 'Miss Jessup' - Northern Bus livery

I believe that CPU 979G was exhibited at the Commercial Motor Show in chassis form and was the first 'production' VR
