Extra Information This was the last new Atlantean to enter service on 12th. June 1978. Re-numbered to 810 in the Brighton & Hove fleet. Withdrawn 17//98 and sold to PVS (Dlr.), Barnsley from there we have few details except being owned by someone in the Poole area. She was noted on Facebook on 3/12/2015 being under a suspended tow by a Wigley (dlr) truck in a semi-derelict condition presumably heading to Carlton for scrapping. A sad end for a former show-bus.
