The latest news on former Leicester City Transport,Leyland PD2 FJF 193, which has been repainted by Thorntons of Ashington following it’s refurbishment by First Leicester at their Abbey Lane garage. The bus was later moved to the North East base of Thorntons where the bus received it’s new coat of maroon and cream paint.
The Leicester Transport Heritage Trust would like to thank the team at First Leicester and Thorntons for the superb work which has gone into FJF 193, which will hopefully see the 1950 built Leyland PD2 return to the road in 2020.
Here are some photos of the work that has taken place during it’s refurbishment at Abbey Lane and after when it received a stunning re-paint at Thorntons. Leicester City Transport crests and legal lettering will follow on it’s return to Leicester.
