Didn’t they have a pair of Solo’s too. I remember the Darts they had one piece number blinds and a couple were still red (regs all ending TGH).

Both Haytons and Ashalls had on more then one occasion suddenly threw in their tenders. The switch to bluebird must have been some kind of business deal as buses were included, likewise when JPT took on Ashalls work several darts and varios were included.

They did have 2x51 reg solos. And possibly the 2 primos as well. Presumably not part of the transfer to bluebird (or had left the fleet?)

No the Solos were used along with the Darts by Haytons but only the Darts passed to Bluebird.

The Primo’s had gone and were replaced by a batch of 4 ex London darts. Two were painted white with no fleetnames etc the other two remained red. These 4 passed to Bluebird.
