DWT472H West Riding Dennis at Teesside 1984/5.

Given the plethora of White ex Weat Riding Dennis machines emerging recently, I thought viewers might like to see this one which appeared at Teesside Airport around 1984/5.

Thank you Mr Hall, for many of us this was one of the worst things ever to happen in the West Riding. Now of course, happily back to red, even if they have got silly stripes!

Dear Scott.
Some French pencil pushers nestled in the civil defense offices in Paris think white would be an option in France...just great!!!

Maybe John, if they had just left the fronts white, and painted the rest red and then added the stripes, things would look better wouldn't they.............?

I have a slide of this (or one similar) taken at the Sandtoft Trolleybus Museum around 1994. It was being followed out by black P4 Rover.
Lovely, two quality machines on one pic!
