Continuing from my last post on 17528/9 having their roofs chopped off to become open tops it is not those W regs Ex Magic Bus Tridents replacing them instead it is Enviro400 bodied Scanias replacing them the W regs were only going to be a for a short period of time until the Scanias transfer over.
17528 (LX51 FOM) featured in Part one and in this post similar 17529 (LX51 FON) is going to be the star of this post. I haven't been on 17529 as much as 17528. 17529 is the one that sounded nicer out of the pair however, was a lot slower than 17528.
17529s rare workings:
17529 has appeared on the 1/1A and is seen in the photo below on the 1 on a wet 2nd January 2016.
|17529 in the wet on the 1 on January 2nd this year|
|17529 on the 99 last year|
|17529s First day in service on the 54 in April 2015|
|17529 on the 54 a few months after the previous photo was taken|
Like 17528, 17529s main route was the 56 and the last few shots are of it on the 56 I will miss both of these Tridents and would like to wish them all the best with their new lives as open toppers. I will leave you with a few pictures of 17529 on the 56.
