Ex-Cardiff Dart joins the fleet

A further Dennis Dart joined the fleet today, former Cardiff 147 (T147DAX), acquired from Aimee's Travel in Leek. It is ironic that our fleet colours closely resemble those of Cardiff Bus, but 147 retains the previous Cardiff livery of turquoise and cream.

147 was once part of a batch of seven MPDs (Mini Pointer Darts) delivered to Cardiff Bus in August 1999, nos 144-150. Withdrawn in 2013 and all still in good condition the entire batch found homes with independent operators, including Select of Swansea & closer to us M&M Coaches in Accrington.
