Dart 162 finally returns!
After over 6 months off the road, our Dart 162 finally returned to passenger service on 8th May. Unfortunately, 162 experienced a lot of mechanical and electrical problems from the start of its entry into service with us back in September 2012. It has required a replacement rear axle, electrical components including gearbox and "aladdin" brain boxes, a rewiring of the looms at the rear end of the bus and replacement brake parts. After gradually working through the issues over the last few months, and a lengthy spell at Ribblesdale Auto Electrics, the bus is finally earning its keep again!
