Eastern National 2826, JHK461C. This entered in service in March 1965 and stayed in the fleet until November 1980 when it was withdrawn and sold along with 3 other FLFs to Southdown for spares.
Note the aluminium beading along the roofside above the top deck windows - this bus was significant in that it used much more glassfibre as an experiment - and foretaste of what was to come. There is an article about this bus by Peter Oughton on the EBEG site - click here to read it.
