|1902 in company with preserved Busways Dennis Dart K723 PNL. Soon the Volvo will be painted in Busways livery.|
Other vehicles on trial included the Scania L113CRL, which were delivered to Busways with Alexander Strider and Northern Counties Paladin bodywork. Dennis Lances were also acquired with Plaxton Verde and Optare Sigma bodies.
In late 2011, 1902 was purchased from Stagecoach by the Tyne and Wear Bus preservation group and was used to attend the NEBPT Seaburn Historic Vehicle display in 2011. The vehicle was purchased from the Tyne and Wear bus preservation group in 2013 by Sean and Stephen Blair for further preservation and it is now about to be painted in Busways livery.
Sean would like pictures of the vehicle in original Busways livery if anyone can oblige please. Please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
