Details: In a rare of example of service vehicles being sold on to become service vehicles, Ensignbus acquired two former East Thames Buses Mercedes Sprinter minibuses in August 2010. Both were photographed at Purfleet garage on 12th August, the day after they arrived. P851OLL has had its lettering stripped off (although remenants are visible, including a Dial-a-Ride roundel on the roof dome) while P185OLC retained a full set of East Thames lettering. Alongside is Scania tow truck UJF182 while just visible at the far left (beyond the Mk6 Ford Transit) is Ford Transit Mk5 minibus M84TAK. This had been bought from Herberts Travel of Shefford a few weeks earlier for possible use as a crew ferry vehicle. Following the arrival of the Mercedes, it was put up for sale.

Thomas YoungP851OLL was not used by Ensign and was sold on. As such, I have reverted the database entry to show the East Thames Buses details.Mon 18/04/2011, 01:37
