1999 DRM fleet list

Post by AdamH » 11:14 Sunday 9th September 2018

Came across this DRM fleet list from 1999. It's not very long so I though I post it here as it may be of interest to someone. Much more Coach bias than todays fleet.
  • MOI 1793 1977 Leyland PSU3E/4R Plaxton C53F (ex OVJ400R)
  • MOI 3512 1973 Volvo B58-56 Plaxton C53F (ex KEG772L)
  • MOI 4000 1990 Volvo B10M East Lancs DP47F
  • MOI 5055 1978 Leyland National B49F (ex RKA871T)
  • MOI 9565 1983 Volvo B10M-61 Konckheere C53FT (ex NVV554Y)
  • GGD 670T 1979 Volvo B58-61 Duple C57F
  • DSR 447V 1980 Volvo B58-56 Plaxton C49FT
  • LBU 781V 1979 Leyland PSU3E/4R Plaxton C49F
The challenge... Are the members of this forum able to provide photos for these vehicles? Go!

Move forward a year or so and he owned more low floor buses than FMR...

Continuing the Bromyard theme - for a real challenge can anybody list all of Martin Perry’s fleet starting from 1 ending and 200 and whatever (including names)? I’ve still got a lot of blanks and pretty much given up all hope of identifying the “Dennis Sabre” (called “Blenheim” I think) that I used to see a lot of back around 1997/1998! :-)

I love those late 70s Plaxton/Duple bodies. Always reminds me of the Malvernian fleet that did school service into the Chase when I was there. Always seemed one step from the scrapyard, but remembered fondly here at least.

. . . . . the “Dennis Sabre” (called “Blenheim” I think) . . . . . :-)

Correct me if I am wrong ,but , does not Dennis + Sabre = fire engine ?? :geek: Mind you , those red machines go pretty well so drop a power unit from the fire engine into a 45 seated bus - and you would never have been late for school/college. :lol:
