Unusual vehicles in National Express Livery
« on: January 23, 2012, 08:12:21 PM »
Some time ago there was a piece on the forum about unsual vehicles in National Express Livery.

Whilst searching through the attic at the weekend, I came across this photo of Armstrong's Bletchley Mercedes 307D which was liveried up for National Express to operate a feeder service from Central Milton Keynes to Milton Keynes Coachway. I believe this was the smallest PSV to have received National Express livery

Marc; correct me if I am wrong, but was Colin Wyatt's ex Cambus breadvan transit not the one that carried a National livery?  If so must be a close second to the 307.

Dont remember C336SFL every carrying NX livery. It was in Cambus livery when it was one of the first vehicles to be transferred into Millers.

The only Cambus minibus in NX livery I remember was one of the Volkswagon/City Pacers.

The only Tranny I can remember being repainted was C334 SFL which received a plain white livery for working contracts with Premier/Miller
