Northampton 114 on ebay
« on: January 17, 2012, 06:21:23 PM »
I was just looking at this on ebay and decided to look up her history and discovered that she is ex-Northampton 114. Might be a silly question but how did she manage to avoid the First 'scrap everything' policy?

I'm even more suprised that the Duple rot box body is still holding together. This buses did give excellent ride quality, rode on this and her sisters 112/3, many times on the 0820 service 95 ex Greyfriars to Moulton Park in the late 90s.
