For bus spotters.....


Recommended Posts

I spotted this Bristol open top bus in a farmyard yesterday. Does anyone know what model/year it might be, please?

Found this - Another ex Southern Vectis open top Bristol LD, BAS 562, turned up at Bishops Lydeard on a connecting service for the Steam Fayre in August 2002.

A picture on Flickr suggests that this bus had been re-registered, having previously been MDL 953 (Southern Vectis 507).  Under the old system "AS" was Nairnshire, but the list on http://www.oldclassiccar.co.uk/registrations/dl.htm has no record of BAS being issued. The old two letter AS apparently sufficed for Nairnshire registrations from 1903 to 1964 !

REd, If the bus you saw was BAS 562 it would appear to be the same one as I photographed the other day - at the other end of the country.
