KGJ603D was originally a short RMA operated by LTE on behalf of BEA. After being purchased by Shaftesbury and District it was lengthened by the insertion of two standard bays making it half a bay longer than an RML. The centre staircase is from an Ailsa. It was licensed for one person operation but it was somewhat difficult to turn round in the cab to access the hatch.
It is seen on hire to Verwood Bus who ran it for a number of weeks after their own bus became defective. The driver is Andy Wood proprietor of Verwood Bus on the occasion of the last ever departure from Poole on service V1 to West Moors a victim of the 2011 Dorset retendering exercise. This offside view shows the unusual staircase position.
