Well this is it. Truely, yet again, the end of an important era. The Step Entrance Dennis Darts have been withdrawn from frontline service, with many due to be scrapped in just a couple of weeks. To think these have been bombing around the streets of Plymouth for nearly two decades is nearly incomprehendable. I think I'd upset quite a few people if I said they were as iconic as the Atlanteans, and indeed, they didn't last half as long! But as a younger enthusiast who struggles to remember the Atlanteans in service at all, these are my version of that type of icon for Plymouth. PCB was one of the very last companies to run the Step Dart on mass, and really, its quite amazing they have lasted this long. Plymouth accidently became quite a Mecca for Dart enthusiasts. Many other places you go, the odd Step Dart here and there is a great capture, and yet you have them running about all the time in Plymouth, or at least, did! Farewell Darts, Plymouth will never be quite the same again.
