Here's an image of one of Fellowes Denning Denairs on display at the bus show. Somewhere in my slide collection waiting to be looked at I'm fairly certain I have a few shots of the one off Denning in question on display at the bus show. No promises but I'll see what I can find.

While on Denning, here's an advertisement by Pickles for their auction of the Deluxe fleet of over 100 vehicles. I haven't recorded the date/year, someone may be able to confirm that.

Thank you Centralian for your reply and photos.

The Denning of Fellowes shows how similar the concept coach was to those Dennings.I know they had a later model Denning with centre door.

I was working for Deluxe in 1989.They were shut down that year.The fleet would have been up for auction later that year or into 1990.

Deluxe went belly up in 1990, 25th September was a Tuesday that year. 115 coaches must have pretty much been the entire fleet.

Thanks for adding the photos Bedford-29.Great collection.I like the Denair TV599. Those centre doors make a difference.
