441 Makes preservation debut at Lincoln, LVVS autumn open day 2015. (P441SWX)
Presented in the livery of previous keeper, Red Kite travel of St.Helens, 441 attended the LVVS open day in Lincoln on 01/11/15, where a superb day was enjoyed as always at this great event.
The Mercedes did not provide any bus services during the day but was a popular static exhiit, with questions about the history of the bus and the plan for it's future.
441 performed superbly, with around 250 miles of running under it's belt during the three days out of it's base, most of it in thick fog!.
The bus came home with me on Saturday halloweeen night, ready for an early departure to Lincoln. On our return from the event, a photo journey was performed in the fog on the X51 Morley to Leeds.
On the Monday, P441SWX was delivered to a bodyshop in Leeds, for attention to body panels, prior to painting into its version of Black Prince livery.
