I suspect between our 2 lists we’ve covered most of the fleet- I’ll have a look if I’ve got any more later. Just for your notes UNA822/829S were actually northern counties not Park Royal. They were part of the re-Reged batch of atlanteans (from the fvr-v batch?)

And at least one walked straight out of Jail into the employment of another cowboy Operator that has also thankfully now ceased - albeit the proprietor is still trading with two or three ancient coaches.......or was until recently.

If we’re talking about the same person he then moved on to another operator in the area.

He had his 'licences' revoked at a PI in November last year. No doubt he will be back at some point.

As for the person that walked out of jail..... I believe he now has a very well paid job within the rail industry.
