The Back End of the Bus

Portsmouth 247, ERV247D, is a Leyland Atlantean PDR1/1 with MCW H43/33F body, new in 1966.
Hants & Dorset have another shortage of vehicles, and 247 and some of her sisters have been shuffled across to Southampton to fill the void. It's a dull day in February 1979, and she's in the parking area of Southampton Bus Station, where the Marlands Shopping Centre now is. This is the "revised" livery, with more white. It seems to be harder to keep clean!
