East Midland 175, SFVC Edwinstowe
Trent, NCT and East Midland provided open top buses for Sherwod Forester services at various times. Here, it is East Midlands' turn, with Bristol VR 175 doing the honours.
The trailer in the background was the Sherwood Forester "control centre", usually staffed by Geoff and Sonia of the County Council's public transport group, providing customer information and also sorting out operational issues on the various shuttles. They had use of a very early mobile phone - about the size of a small briefcase!
