Thanks to strong personal contacts, from time to time Southend helped out Colchester Borough Transport and vice versa. Colchester RELL 23, OWC723M, was loaned to ST between August and November 1978 and Peter has paused here in Thames Drive for John Lidstone's camera whilst covering for a missing Eastern National trip on the 24.
Ironically, after deregulation, ST and CBT were to come under common ownership (British Bus, then Cowie and Arriva) between 1993 and 2004.
