LCSW New Contract commenced with
LONDON COUNTRY SOUTH WEST
an358

The green bus is AN360 (BNE752N)

The two buses on the left (AN358 & AN363) are two of LCSW AN's for the 110 that had not been repainted in time for the start of contract.

To start with they were used as Ferry vehicles - but soon saw service on the 110.

They were repainted green when further examples were acquired for the 131.

110 used 5AN's to start with - these were replaced with 5 Dennis Dominators - and then the mighty 88 seat Volvo Citybuses - all during a 3 year contract.
