Hitting the road!
With thanks once again to the keen eye of Tom Pearce, I can bring you these great shots of recently transferred Volvo Olympian P568 EFL seen this evening in Bretonside having just come off a school run. The bus certainly stands out with the non standard Barbie 3 features added to the livery, which have been discussed before on the blog. These variations seem to change from vehicle to vehicle, but its not too bad at all on P568 compared to many which do completely ruin the livery. This can only mean though that we are beginning to approach the end for the final Leyland Olympians with First Devon and Cornwall. With Leylands in various forms being associated with Plymouth since the early 1900s, it will be a big leap when we see the final type disappear from the streets of Plymouth. The final surviving Leyland after these go will most likely be Plymouth Discovery Tours' Leyland Leopard.
