London DMS

The ill-fated Daimler Fleetline class of the early 70s, redeemed themselves when they escaped from the Capital and did many years service with operators the length of the county and beyond.
DMS at Showbus 80
1980 saw Showbus staged at the new Thorpe Park near Staines. A special feature celebrated the DMS revival as hoards of rejected London vehicles found grateful new owners the length of the country. Nearest the camera is Hedingham's DMS. Next is a mobile exhibition unit for Ciba-Geigy Agricultural. Two Oxford DMS follow, the second in Park & Ride livery. One of the two London DMS is actually owned by Ensignbus, who dealt with all the DMS sales. Other examples in the line up include buses from Derby, Charlton-on-Otmoor Services and famous DMS user, Stevnsons of Uttoxeter.
 
 
Ensignbus B217 DMS 2000 KJD500P
Ensignbus not surprisingly used several DMS class vehicles on its own London tendered services. B217 (KJD500P) was originally DMS2000 and is seen on early Ensignbus tendered route 62.
 
London Transport DMS136
This vehicle, displayed at Showbus 98, is DMS136 and is seen amidst the London bus display.
 
Blue Triangle Streatham DMS
Incredibly, this DMS of Blue Triangle snook, out of service, to the Streatham terminus of route 60, which seemed happily operating in the hands of Blue Triangle Metrobuses.
 
Blue Triangle DMS on the 60
The next moment the DMS is in service on the 60 in February 1999 - just up the road Arriva London are operating brand new low floor DAF doubledeckers! The 60 later received a long awaited fleet of low floor DAF/Plaxton President and DAF/Optare Spectras operated by Capital Logistics.
