Thaesdown Dennis Dart Dartline
Thamesdown adopted a trade name for its town routes of Dartline. Appropriately enough here is a line of Dartline Darts at the Corporation Street depot.
Great Western Thamesdown Dart
This smart step entrance Dart is in a special livery for Great Western Trains, in the days before First Great Western.
 
Thamesdown Isle of Man Dart
Thamesdown is not adverse to purchasing vehicles secondhand - we have already seen the ex East Staffs Dominator and others of their breed came later from London & Country. Even old Bournemouth Fleetlines have been acquired as school buses and appropriately kept yellow. Not branded as Dartline, a useful batch of step entrance Darts was acquired from Isle of Man Road Services as they reverted to doubledeck operations. This one is seen at Millennium Showbus.
Thamesdown Limebourne Dart
Another secondhand bus. 143 (R317NGM) is a Dennis Dart SLF acquired via Ensignbus from Kent operator King's Ferry. The bus however had been intended for London tendered operations when new and had been ordered by Q-Drive, the parent company of Limebourne. At the time of delivery, Limebourne went out of business and their operatiosn passed to Connex, though the batch of new Plaxton Pointer bodied SLF Darts did not.
