Unrestored motor coach 60019 started up

Our fourth motor coach No. 60019, which is virtually in “as-withdrawn” condition, was started up and run for a while on Friday 23 July 2004.

Machines such as these deteriorate less quickly if they are operated from time to time, and with this in mind 60019 is started & run every month to test its systems and top up the batteries. Its power unit is in fine fettle (and sounds great!); this vehicle is set to be HDL’s next motor-coach restoration project.
