Seen again, this time plodding through the wet streets of Maidstone, is 5769.
Sister vehicle 5770 (OWE270K) is seen in the centre of Maidstone about to depart for Rye on the 12.
The Sheffield East Lancs VRs were highbridge models, but M&D were no strangers to highbridge VRs with a batch bodied by ECW. Here is 5741 (KKE741N) which looks strange with its uncharacteristic deep white band as it arrives at Epsom for the Derby.
A mix of VRs in Maidstone Bus Station. Maidstone & District 5883 (HKM883V) is a normal height (ie lowbridge) VR originally ordered by East Kent. Next in line are 5742 and 5745, two of the higbridge models with the wide white bands, then there is a further lowbridge model.
Seen passing each other are a contrasting pair of VRs in Hastings. Facing us is highbridge 5117 (PKM117R). The lowbridge example has Hastings & District fleetnames.
