Details: Two Metroline DP-class buses have recently been added to the database, though in reality have been service vehicles for quite some time. P674MLE and P675MLE were new to MTL London Northern as their DP274 and DP275 in May 1997, being among the last step-entrance Dennis Darts for London use. They passed to Metroline when MTL sold its London operations, and DP274 became an ancillary vehicle in 2002, followed by DP275 in 2006. It is not clear if these were normal driver training buses at that stage but within a few years they were both modified to act as crew rest vehicles. Some of the seats were removed and tables fitted. As such, one of the buses was often outstationed to the rather remote East Acton terminus of route 7. DP275 was photographed there on 5th August 2013. Note how the red livery has faded almost to pink.
