The X1 Story - The Fleet
 
This list records all of Southendís coach fleet, both owned and short and long term hires. We think that it is complete! It includes all vehicles used mainly on X1 or available for use (such as the DP Olympians).
Service buses have also been used from time to time but are not listed here.
