Stagecoach does have at least one Bristol VR in preservation - JOU 160P. I think there may be a few others, although i think thats the only one, unless they were privately hired in?
I should hope so, it used to be one of ours when Basingtoke had their 4 VRs. Oh the memories i have of them!
Was any of the Bristol Lodekkas there this year? As for the ex Stagecoach VRs - I can predict that at least one of them would have been EWS 74X W - Ex Stroud Valleys, Ex Stagecoach in Hampshire and yes, also ex Basingstoke!
Could they of been Stagecoach ones? I saw some of them running around at the Cheltenham Races.
