I've always like the Dudley's livery, but I wish they'd put Dudley's on the sides and the vehicle's name above the screen, it always looks odd to me the way they do it :lol:

Very glad to see a Grey-Green B10M re-body preserved. It represents a point in transport history noted for its upheaval and new thinking, not to mention it being a great bus.

Bus Lists on the Web shows at least 14 coach bodied B10M built in 1985 being rebodied by East Lancs in 1992, some with single-deck and others with double-deck bodies as illustrated. I wonder what happened to the Plaxton coach bodies; it seems a waste of good structures that were less than 7 years old, especially when similar coaches ran for more than 20 years in front line service!
