The last traditional front-engined bus bought by Brighton Corporation joined sister buses 32 & 34 moving from Wightline to London Hop-On Hop-Off in June 1994 and to London Pride in April 1995. Unfortunately she made the one-way journey to PVS (Dlr.), Barnsley in August 1996. Latest news, via the SEC indicates that this bus is still with PVS at least up to May 2005!
