Wilts and Dorset Operator Index

Hants & Dorset KMW109, a Bristol LD6G new to Wilts & Dorset as 602 in 1954, with the usual ECW body, arranged H33/25R. She became 403 at the renumbering in 1971, passing to Hants & Dorset when the fleets merged in 1972.
We see her in the yard of Southampton Depot during the lunch break one day in August 1975. It isn't raining, but it has been. She's in the training fleet, renumbered (again) to a 9000 series number I can't decipher, and platform doors have been fitted, and she's painted as an overall advert, but not the standard "Buy Bloggs' because Bloggs's is best!". Like many operators, H&D has severe staff shortages, and the vacancies need to be filled.
