A trip to come on LFJ 862W


News has come to me that preserved ex Devon Genaral Bristol VR LFJ 862W owned by James Pratt will soon be doing a trip from Exeter around Devon.

I received news from a friend that James was inviting fellow enfusiasts like ourselves to to come up to Exeter on the 24th of this month to come and have a long distance trip around the country roads of Devon for a Sunday afternoon with a difference. The bus will depart Exeter at 10:00 and will not return for another 7hours and 30 minutes pulling in at approximately 17:30. So a very good trip to look forward to and might turn out very popular. Contact James for further details.

She's away and she can stay away

The Dart of Torpoint 40002 (S764 RNE) is currently away from the depot having her MOT. She has been away since Wednesday meaning that my Thursday evening bus I get was my favourite Leyland Olympian 34812, my favourite bus at Torpoint. She will stay away probably until Wednesday but well in my opinion she can stay away as long as she wants. She is seen here with her new blind and a new driver (well back then he was) in Cremyll on 81B
