Blackpool Atlantean 362 to get repaint

Blackpool Atlantean 362 is to receive a repaint back into the late 1980s style green & cream livery applied to the Atlantean class following deregulation in 1986 (though not actually applied to 362 until 1991).

362 was purchased for preservation following a generous donation from an LTT member and now the same individual has contributed to the repaint cost which will be undertaken by the BusWorks. This will allow 362 to make appearances in 2010 for the 125th tramway anniversary events; the bus has been stored since acquisition in November 2006.
