Its Ribble cousin, Bristol VRT 1997, is having its engine removed to be sent away for overhaul. This bus passed its Class VI PSV test last autumn, but unfortunately blew a piston liner on its return journey to Blackpool and requires the equivalent of open-heart surgery.
Finally, Blackpool PD3 No.529 is having some panels damaged whilst out on private hire work replaced.
