Rather ironically the earliest pic I could find of 83 just happens to be in May 2007 at this strange town called Ipswich. Seen on the Park and Ride before the destination screen had been programmed. The pic is by parkandride2007 whose Flickr page you can access here.

By September 2007 83 had moved inland from the coast and was working for Preston Bus in December for Stagecoach Yorkshire, and in April the following year our 6 wheeled heroine was in Nottingham, on loan to Trent Nottingham. This pic was taken by John Law whose Flickr page can be accessed here.
