Regal Busways 1301 X298NNO has had a little accident. Its now open top, after going under the bridge near Chelmsford Bus Station.

Oh dear!  Is it valuable enough to be rebuilt I wonder?

From what I was told, the body was straight enough, and not bent, so it could be re-built or could be a open topper for Regal Busways.

Not sure if they would be able to justify rebuilding it, seeing as when Carters did a similar open top conversion to one of their Tridents at Manningtree the chassis ended up twisted and the bus was scrapped....
