Olympian 401 next for MoT prep

401 on the vehicle lift at our Brinwell Road depot - 28 May 2012
Following the successful MoT pass of Lytham PD1 No.19, our veteran from 1946, the next vehicle to be assessed for MoT preparation is former Blackpool Transport Leyland Olympian No.401. New in March 1983 as Trent 701, this vehicle was operated by Blackpool Transport from 1997 to September 2010 and was acquired for preservation in January 2012. Current plans are to get 401 through a Class VI MoT test and then arrange a full repaint.
