Veteran Citybus Soldiers On
I recently had the pleasure of delivering this old lady to her new home in Devon. This veteran double decker has had much love during her life spending the majority of it with Chester’s Coaches in Walkden, Manchester where Harry and Chris ensured she was kept in pristine condition and modernised when required, hence the gull wing mirrors, and front face lift. Following a short spell with Yelloway she is off to a new home by the seaside in Brixham, Devon with Brixham College who have recently found a requirement for a double decker due to social distancing requirements in the coming months due to COVID 19. They couldn’t have chosen a better bus. She is seen here on Taunton Deane Services on the M5 prior to completing the last leg of her journey which included a rather spirited climb up Telegraph Hill on the A380. I can happily report that she performed faultlessly on the 300 mile journey. Thanks to Mark Brook and the team at Yelloway for supplying the vehicle in pristine condition as always. Also, a special thanks to Chris and Hary Chester for ensuring her longevity of life and keeping her in tip top condition for so many years. Again, I wouldn’t expect anything less. Finally good luck to Glyn and his team at Brixham College with their new purchase. I’m sure she’ll serve you well.
