R&M Leonard, St Helens Volvo B58

Postby LocoLes » Mon Jul 03, 2017 4:06 pm

This Volvo B58 with Domino Hedges bodywork [DM0309] was photographed at St Helens in 2004 and in exactly the same spot I photographed D75VQ in June this year [2017]. So far I have been unable to match with any details. Leonard's of St Helens probably operate the coach but no identification visible at the time photographed. :D

LocoLes,

The three red stripes on the Volvo B58 would reveal that the vehicle is ex Grenda (Vic), where it would have been one of the following: 11, 24, 58, 59, 103, 104, 105, 106 or 107.

Regards,
Paul

Hi Fleetlists also Paul, thanks for your replies.
I have just re-read my post and realise I left out the fact I was seeking information on the coach in photos 2 & 3................ The coach does not reveal any details, just a plain white livery at this stage which suggests it has only recently been acquired. My apologies for not making that clear. :oops:
