Extra Information Followed sister bus 65 to Modeldart, Hucknall in April 1994 and withdrawn in June of the same year. To Nottingham CT also in June and withdrawn by them in December 1994. To Torquay Playbus Project same month. Was with Magor Playbus Assoc. Monmouthshire by July 1995 and was still there in a withdrawn state in October 2009 when it passed to The Roving Return public house in Rochdale. It was to be converted into a 'booze-bus' but not used as such. Noted at Falcon Garage in 1/11 but "gone 2/11 via e-Bay" to Cavendish School of English, Bournemouth. Thanks to SEC for that info.
Photo Caption The subtle differences of livery between Brighton Corporation and Brighton Buses can be noted here with the absence of black window surrounds and the French navy blue skirt which was adopted on the latter fleet named buses. Atlantean 66 is seen at the Clock Tower bus stop in Western Road on service 43.
