FLEET NEWS. MERCEDES MIDIBUS 283 N283 PDV

Great news.... 283 has been started up and assessed by  P.C.B.S. Lots of minor faults found and to be fixed but it is now running smoothly, starting straight on the button. The chassis is in good shape, very little corrosion. The bonnet was however badly corroded,so another one is being sourced.

It was thought that having this one back up and roadworthy was the best use of group funds as it will be very economical and just the right size for group trips and visits most of the time.
