Well, at least there's a bit of blue

While photographing Ex-London Dennis Dart X769 HLR yesterday there was a certain little surprise hiding in the blind box! After zooming in on the photos it appears that instead of using a paper number as they have done before, First have dug out a blue Western National number blind dating back to the 80s! Obviously they'd thrown out all the black ones, other than the black destination blinds, and hence have had to install this rather than continue using bits of paper. Weird to think that this is the only bit that is at least in some way coloured correctly on the vehicle!

Thanks to Gary Furness, this number blind has come out of the Western National Preservation Society's stores. A driver went to Thompsons solicitors to clarify the law, and was told a piece of paper with a number on wasn't good enough. All London buses have manual blinds D&C don't. Hanover displays Don't make blinds this size anymore, so the workshop controller, Andy (the fat controller) Mogg decided to use these until a digital replacement can be found.
