LR52 KXA
« on: August 27, 2013, 07:43:30 PM »
Saw this all white ex Metroline Trident today in the Dogsthorpe area of Peterborough.

I suppose it could belong to one of the recruitment agencies, but seems a bit new for the ex Godwins fleet
which are the main users of DDs in the area.

Anyone seen this? I have been away for a week so a bit out of touch.
