Photo Facts (top to bottom)
Brighton & Hove are now the sole operator on the service to Eastbourne since Stagecoach gave up their operation from Lewes depot.   East Lancs/Scania 643 (YN54QOV) is seen leaving Eastbourne for Brighton in June 2006.
First recently upgraded the coastal X53 service from Exeter to Bournemouth with new East/Lancs bodied Scanias.   Their 36002 (YN04GNX) is seen climbing the hill out of Seaton on a particularly hot summer day in June 2005.
East Kent had just been sold to Stagecoach when this Metrobus (F774EKM) was seen at the quayside in Ramsgate in July 1994.
Red London buses can often be seen outside of the capital on jaunts to the seaside in the summer.   London General NV179 (VLT179) heads up two similar other Northern Counties bodied Olympians on Worthing promenade in July 2006.
Southern Vectis K742ODL, an open top Olympian, is seen at Yarmouth on one of the many Isle of Wight island tours in September 2005.
When West Coast Motors took over from Stagecoach on the Isle of Bute they retained many of the vehicles, such as this Dart seen at the pier in Rothesay in August 2005.
This fine ECW bodied Lodekka, 869NHT, was operating for Applebys in Scarborough in July 1994.   It started life as one of four convertible open toppers for Bristol Omnibuses and is now owned by Martin Curtis in preservation.
Stagecoach Devon is one of the healthiest bus operations in Britain, resulting in substantial investment (unlike its First neighbour).   The trunk coastal service from Newton Abbott to Brixham was upgraded a few years ago with Tridents such as 18065 (WA04CRK) seen on Torquay promenade in 2006 on the warmest July day ever.
