Mitcham Belle Dennis Dart SLF Plaxton Pointer 2
Mitcham Belle started London operations on the 10th April 1999 with the acquisition of route 127. A year later they picked up the 200 and 201 from London General, on which this 10-metre Dart SLF with Plaxton bodywork is seen on the South Circular.
 
Later purchases of Darts for services in the Wimbledon area had Caetano Nimbus bodies, like this one, KW51BFP, on the 152, appropriately in Mitcham. The livery was also modified at this stage to comply with "Red Ken" edicts.
