SCH117X, NTHC Ruddington, 25-06-2000
A historic vehicle. The last Fleetline ever produced, and proudly carrying Daimler scrolls as well as the Leyland name, with relatively unusual ECW bodywork but for a long confirmed Fleetline operator.
Well deserved preservation was cut short in 2007 when an arson attack damaged several vehicles beyond viable repair, including this one. It is of course ironic that the prototype Fleetline, 7000HP, also met its end in a fire not a huge distance from here at the Etwall base of Blue Bus Services.
