Eastern National
'Sold On' FLFs and VRs
Many of the pictures and captions in this gallery have been provided by Paul Harrison, a self-confessed FLF fanatic, of Eastern National buses, predominantely FLFs, after they had been sold on at the end of their working life, either with new owners or in scrapyards. Any more contributions of pictures of 'sold-on' Southend Corporation or Eastern National vehicles would be welcomed.
