Interesting ebay find
« on: November 09, 2015, 10:00:53 PM »
I stumbled across this tonight - did H&D win in 1999? Which one of the B10BLEs was entered?

A quick search online says that the B10BLE entered was R120HNK, now numbered 21120 by Stagecoach at Bedford.

Of interest it arrived at the rally as a display vehicle but returned to Cambridge in service, one of its sisters was smashed up in a RTA outside the museum.
Never ask a dustman to talk shop.
He will only talk a load of rubbish!

Going by this photo it was R120 herself that was damaged in a RTC - https://www.flickr.com/photos/26024754@N07/4310603040/in/photolist-7yUY75-q3HMeV-s97fqq-xVATHS-vSDSyK-jugwNh-re4i1C-jhb6H9-arEma8-9z5Uc9-9vDKZe-9z5THE-9z5TvS-8nApyd-6FKXd4-7hx5Kv-z1CDy2-9yiip7-9z2SAr-91DYGs

I assume the replacement B10BLE won the prize!
