Snap On Sunday
I nearly forgot to post about this!
This photo was taken on the M4 if I remember rightly. This is of course one of the K-LAE Leyland Olympians, this one being K618 LAE. Many of you will recognise her as she did indeed work in Cornwall for a while but has been laid up in Cambourne for a while now. She was the one that had a run in with a tree and even from this angle the damage to the nearside top deck is very visible. The damage can be seen better when viewing Anthony's PHOTO.
So here she is being dragged away by an Erith Commercials Wreaker on her very last journey. Shame it couldn't be one that she could make on her own. The K-LAEs have been one of those batches that seem to have made it the length and breadth of the country and it is a shame that the last of the Leylands are now being withdrawn and scrapped. After some 16 years of hard service its a sad end for this old Bristol girl which of course started off life at *Bristol Cityline* (Thanks Derrick) in 1993. R.I.P K618!
