We have much experience in bus preservation, having previously
restored the unique Leyland National Suburban Express flat
floored demonstrator, RRM148M, a regular winner of awards at 
rallies all over England.This bus has now passed to Michael
Wootten, of Chesham, Buckinghamshire, where it is kept with the
other vehicles of Woottens Coaches fleet.
