Mature Metrobuses
Lincolnshire Road Car has reduced the age profile of its fleet by purchasing a batch of 20 year old Metrobuses from Travel West Midlands.   Their  787 (POG587Y) is seen in Lincoln in August 2002.  Durham Travel Services recently went into administration.   With immediate effect their London subsidiary Easylink was ordered to surrender the (185) route.   As a consequence several unusual operators have been called upon to provide assistance.   Arriva Original London Sightseeing Tours MB659 (KYV659X) is seen arriving at Victoria on a glorious September day in 2002.
