ye linlithgow is L283 not L281. Steve in your opinion do u like the way it has white bumper and silver vents?

Added by Jamie Percival on 19 February 2007.
The ferry's own 'N' scanny is in for service so L283 now running as 581's machine just now.

Added by Stevie Murray on 02 March 2007.
what u think of L283?

Added by Jamie Percival on 03 March 2007.
if i were to comment on the condition of L283 I would be banned from this site for offensive language!

Added by Stevie Murray on 05 April 2007.
how come?

Added by Jamie Percival on 05 April 2007.
L283 is a bit of a wreck now. Suspension on it is naff, the front seats won't adjust height wise and she lacks speed.

Added by Stevie Murray on 05 April 2007.
well she was in perfect nick when left linlithgow i have just applied for there

Added by Jamie Percival on 05 April 2007.
reserve machines don't seem to get looked after very well due to there nomadic lifestyle. good luck with your application.

Many thanks. I take it the two CARP's are still hidden in Newbridge? Keep missing them.
