First have been busy with the paint brush recently, refurbishing some of the older Darts and Volvo B6s. With the introduction of the B7s the rest of the fleet has been shown up and bit, but with a bit of fresh paint on them, they're looking superb again. I know many people are not a fan of the Barbie 3 livery though I think the livery suits many of the modern more streamline buses, that a livery from the past would not.
Here is newly re-painted Volvo B6 W829 PFB seen basking in the afternoon sun down at Bretonside before working an 83.
STOP PRESS - With research undertaken this bus was the one painted in the advertising livery for Southern Electric (big green one!)
