Flashback this week with another picture from our recently scanned 35mm slides from the late seventies and eighties. This early ECW bodied Bristol VRTSL6G was new to Alexander (Midland) as MRT3 (SMS33H). The Scottish Bus Group did not get on with its VRs and swapped them all with the National Bus Company for late model Bristol Lodekkas, forward thinking as ever! The bus was delievered with the standard triangular SBG destination display which is probably why its new owner, Eastern National installed their standard T-blind upside down when it arrived in Essex in 1971. The bus, now Eastern National 3004, is at Tilbury Ferry and is being joined by a London Country Routemaster. The VR was sold on to Crosville in 1982 as DVG554, passing to Crosville Cymru at deregulation where it lasted till 1990.
