A lovely pair of Bristols - KSW5G ECW of course- from Eastern National delivered in 1953 which went through major renumbering in 1954 & 1964. VNO859 (4189, then 1407 as seen here, then 2364) is one of a trio with platform doors and staggered seats upstairs, intended for the Braintree (BE) to London service (322 )inherited from Hicks Brothers. It will soon reach its 40th year in continuous preservation.
WNO480 (4215, then 1427, then 2384) is one of ten converted to open top by ENOC in 1965/6 for sea front services at Clacton & Southend. Initially in Tilling cream livery,it now carries the later NBC white style(?). It is now part of the heritage fleet of Talisman Coach Lines, Gt Bromley, Essex.
