Details: Although the handling characteristics must surely be different, several bus companies have used articulated lorries as training vehicles for bus drivers. In the LTSV area, examples known of were Kentish Bus and London Coaches. Moving somewhat further afield, this photograph taken in Newcastle in 1992 shows Mercedes-Benz SK tractor E874PBE in the striking grey, red and blue livery of Northumbria Motor Services. Northumbria was formed in 1986 from the northern part of the United company. It was privatised in 1987 and bought Kentish Bus in 1988. All three operators are now part of the Arriva group. Note that the lorry has fleetnumber 60 while the trailer appears to be 61A.
