Throwback Thursday

Fresh from refurbishment in October 1991, the first Atlantean with a Palatine front 71 poses alongside the two Seagull Coaches Atlanteans, refurbished over the previous winter. 71 was new as Fylde 85, 24 was new as 74 and 25 was new as 75. 24 is better known as 44 in the Fylde Bus Collection, while 25 is also preserved as 45.
