Details: Training buses are not counted as service vehicles on this web site, and the example here is not meant to be the main subject of the picture! However, it was left in as it has an interesting history. J135PVC was a dual-door all-Leyland Olympian built as a demonstrator and finished initially in London Buses livery. I seem to recall it was used for a while in East London, but was soon sold to Capital Citybus as their 250. Capital Citybus became First Capital, and then plain First, and the fleetnumbers were changed to national ones that I still can't get used to. With the delivery of huge numbers of low-floor double-deckers, J135PVC was transferred to the training fleet and repainted in a plain variation of Barbie livery as seen here near Northumberland Park depot on 7th November 2006. The lorry (before I forget) is 2523F. As no tail-lift is fitted the rear of the open body is a drop-door.
