EXCLUSIVE: The Trust took delivery of former East Kent Leyland Olympian J812NKK. The bus was driven from Sleaford, Lincoln to Folkestone via the M1, M11 and M20 in 5 hours.
The Trust offers its thanks to Mark in Sleafordian Coaches, Lincoln for passing the bus across to the Trust for preservation. This bring the Trust collection to 15 vehicles.
J812NKK will receive minor work at the front dome of the bus and paintwork (poles) inside the bus. Thereafter, it will be repainted into the EK livery.
