Always liked the basic white Stagecoach livery with orange, red and blue stripes rising towards the rear, but the Cheltenham District Diamond Jubilee dark red and ivory with gold lining out really suits this VRT in my opinion.

I agree Tim, I think Stagecoach should repaint it back into this livery!
