654: Bristol VRTSL6G / ECW
 Padbus 654 Bristol VRT / ECW
654 (YUD 654V) Bristol VRTSL6G / ECW H43/31F
Surprisingly, in view of the fleet's need for low height buses, the Bristol VRT was not much favoured by Padbus. The only covered top one was this lime green and white example. Its out of sequence fleet number arose because it retained its pre-rationalisation number as it fell within the new low height 600 series. Renumbering buses was not a task to be undertaken lightly in the days before computer generated graphics. It was in service from before 1986 until 2000.
