Details: Looking a bit down at heel, this bus had been new in 1972 as one of the first production Leyland Nationals, one of very few to be given K suffix registrations, and the first of over 500 to be bought by London Country. LN1 was withdrawn from bus service in January 1979 but was then converted into a mobile engineering classroom, re-emerging in this green and yellow livery in May 1981. Its new role lasted less than 4 years and it was delicensed in spring 1984 and cannibalised for spare parts over the next couple of years. On 21st August 1985 it was photographed at Crawley works parked alongside sister vehicle LN7, by then converted into a mobile shop. I've just realised I haven't published any photos of the latter yet. This will be addressed soon.
