Extra Information This bus was expertly converted into a mobile home & office for the missionary family but on entering Belgium it was discovered that a vehicle with two decks is a bus no matter how converted and the drivers need a PSV licence. Whilst attempting to obtain the neccessary documents the bus broke down and with the family away from it it was severly vandalised and they were forced to scrap it. Surely that wouldn't happen here, would it?
Photo Caption Prior to 59's unfortunate trip to Belgium it is seen here at Brighton Station while on service 42 clockwise.
