Hi all

Two more Anglian vehicles have been repainted

They are former Brighton & Hove Trident T815RFG complete with front guard to fend off tree damage and Metrobus exile YN03WRJ. The former is not yet complete

For pics and report see my blog at

My thanks to Tim Miller for photos and information

Kind regards
