Vario tribute

Here is my short tribute to the Varios that have worked the 81s and laterly 181s at Torpoint over the years. The Vario really has been the workhorse of the depot, and you knew if you needed to get somewhere then a Vario would always get you there on time. They really are pocket rockets, much like Bristol LHs of yesteryear the Vario whisked along the winding roads of the region, and many still do. But this is the end of the Torpoint Varios, and now many of the FDC Varios are going. Sadly Torpoint's have been replaced by Dennis Dart MPDs. Its just not the same! (Well I never saw myself saying this about a Vario!)
