This section features details of buses currently owned by the various administrators and friends of the Merseyside Dennis Dart Website. Between us, we currently own three buses and you will find photo galleries and potted histories of each below.
Leyland Olympian / Northern Counties PalatineThis Leyland Olympian with Northern Counties Palatine bodywork was new in August 1990 and saw use in London before transferring to Merseyside where it spent nine years with Arriva North West. Following a stint at GHA Coaches, it is now safely preserved and currently wears Grey-Green's colourful livery.
Volvo Olympian / Northern Counties Palatine IIOne of a popular batch of luxurious ex-MTL Volvo Olympians, N305CLV is the sole survivor of a trio new to Southport in March 1996 for use on the 284 route. Having spent over eight years in Bristol, it has returned home to Merseyside for preservation where it will be restored to original Southport & District condition.
Optare Solo M850Optare Solo V980XUB was new to First Bristol in February 2000 and transferred to HTL Buses in July 2006 where it spent the rest of its service career. Following withdrawal in 2016, it is now gradually undergoing restoration to return it to working order.
