Olympians to return?

Leyland Olympians 365 and 403 have been extracted from storage and returned to Rigby Road. It is understood both are being prepared for MOT tests and a short term return to use. This may be to cover for the Volvo Olympians which are starting to receive internal refurbishments, 376/7 are currently at Bus and Coach World, Blackburn for the installation of seat belts. If the mooted Isle of Man Tridents appear this will allow the Volvo Olympians to be cascaded onto schools work and release older Olympians for withdrawal.

Tridents 310, 339 and Solo 292 are currently in the paint shop.
