We start in 1986 with this Eastern Counties Ford Transit Minibus that was on loan to cover a soon to be withdrawn service 36 to Wherstead Village. We had 4 of these as ferry buses on Boro'line and I remember them well. Not with great nostalgia I must admit!

UPDATE: Further to the round up yesterday Malcolm Robson has got in touch to tell me that although they have been up to look at Lothian |darts no decision has yet been made as to purchase any. Also Yarmouth Dart 42921 is still in Norwich with Norwch B7l 66301 still in Yarmouth. My apologies for the inaccuracies. My sources face a firing squad at dawn!!
