I'm sure we can easily manage 41 SCT61 time travellers to pay 55p (40p for children) for this afternoon excursion from Leicester to Twycross Zoo. Barton 1117, VNL588, was a Bedford SB5 with Duple Super Vega C41F new to Hollings, Wallsend in February 1962 and stands beside an unknown heavyweight companion, with one or other taking a cheaper unspecified tour instead.
The Bedford is an acquisition still on home territory, coming with the business of Harris, Leicester in 1968 though it was sold to Bowers, Bridgend in September 1972 and later served with a jazz band in Penarth until September 1983.
