Panther YN60BVS
« on: June 27, 2014, 05:20:35 PM »
I see this former Weardale Motor Services Plaxton Panther bodied Volvo B12M heading Westbound past Duxford IWM most mornings - its still in full Weardale colours minus fleet names. Does anyone know who owns it now please, I'm assuming a operator in the area? (Probably Andrews as they never seem to repaint anything these days including a few coaches in full Mil-Ken livery!)

I asked about this back in April but saw it again this week operating one of Richmond's of Barley contract workings to the Wellcome Trust campus at Hinxton.  It was heading out of Cambridge towards Fulbourn at about 9am.

I was unable to tell whether it was actually a Richmond's vehicle, they are usually fairly prompt at repainting acquired vehicles into fleet livery, or whether it was on hire from someone else.

Only thing I can think of is that's it's hired from a dealer, Richmonds always seem to have a hire in over the summer although IIRC for the past two years it's been a Temsa Safari.
