    Class 142 Destination Blind

    142019 was the unit that retained the number blinds obviously not used or on show as the 142s did use the same blind set up as a leyland national bus. Some time around 2005 the 142s had the leyland type boxes removed and a standard 143 144 blind box fitted with the handle coming down into the cab.
