Bus turned into open topper by preservation group
A COMMUNITY group has created what they believe to be a first in bus preservation.
The Plymouth City Transport Preservation Group has made an open-top bus from an old Student Link vehicle.
The bus will be used on trips in the busy summer rally season as well as performing a vital tree-cutting role for Plymouth City Council in the autumn and winter months.
The conversion, carried out at the group’s Colebrook depot has created a much needed additional open top facility, taking the pressure off its other 1960's Leyland Atlantean open topper.

Lead by group chairman Ralph Delbridge, it also provides Plymouth with a vital service vehicle to keep the bus lanes free of the danger of overhanging branches in the future.
Group Chairman Ralph Delbridge added “While we actively preserve the public transport of the past for future generations to enjoy, it is equally important that future public transport connections are developed and we are pleased to be able to play an important part benefiting both the travelling public and local bus operators.
“Our sincere thanks go to Plymouth CityBus managing director Richard Stevens and Engineering Director Mark Horide in their open support of our group in the acquisition of this and other former service vehicles.”
