Southern Vectis 711 - TIL6711 - Shanklin (Landguard Road) - Summer 2003
I was never sure if I liked this livery. The red seemed to fade over the years (as red tends to do), but when new and gleaming these buses did look excellent. I suppose I also grew up in my pre-enthusiast days with the mushroom and cream livery, which I much preferred. Here 711 (TIL6711) heads for Cowes, via Godshill and Newport. It is pictured on a lovely day in Shanklin. 711 moved to Wilts & Dorset following the arrival of Scanias in 2008 and 2009.
