Today I took my first trip down to Mevagissey aboard a vehicle I haven't ridden on for a long white.
More specifically this was an FDC Mercedes Vario, this being S557 RWP. It must be some 4 years since I last rode on the vehicle when it was on short term loan from Plymouth depot to Torpoint while one of the Varios wasn't available. Actually ignore me on that one. Last time I rode on it was on the 39 in fact! Sorry I really do write this as I go along. That would have been sometime in 2008 where I rode on it as far as Derriford if memory serves me. I would delve into the archives for a photo but they still aren't available to me!
Here though I do have a - well terrible photo of the bus during 2006 when at Torpoint. I only have this because I did a blog on this bus at Torpoint a long while ago. The Vario does seem to have lost its 'umph' since I last rode on it. Still it did bring back memories and was a nice change to a Solo.
