1986-1989: Life with Leicester Citybus

Delivered new to Leicester Citybus, in June 1986. One of a batch of four with the then new style sloping front end East Lancashire bodywork. 100 had a very short service life with Leicester Citybus and was withdrawn in 1989.

1989-2009: After service with Leicester Citybus

100 was sold to Warrington Borough Transport along with her three sisters in March 1989. Worked for the next twenty years with Warrington, before it was withdrawn in July 2009.

2009-Date: In preservation

Bought for preservation by private purchase and returned to Leicester in 2009. 100 was then dispatched to “Busworks” of Blackpool in early 2010 for work for refurbishment. Since then the bus has been re-panelled and extensively refurbished inside to bring her back to original Leicester condition. The bus has been repainted into the Citybus Red, white and grey livery.
