In April 1987, in preparation for privatisation, Midland Red (North) Limited made major reductions in their operations. Midland Fox Limited acquired two Leyland Tiger TRCTL11/3R coaches, A511–A512HVT, from the surplus Midland Red North fleet, which entered service with the fleet numbers 5 and 6.

To disguise the age of the vehicles, Midland Fox reregistered both vehicles with Irish registration number plates, EIL3017 and EIL3018.
