Bersenbruck Surprise

Post by Dubmatix » Sat Sep 26, 2009 12:03 am

After a few emails back and forth with Ansgar at BSB firestation, out of the blue came this photo found by another firefighter based at Bersenbruck showing Vicky in service at a training centre. The Bay window VWs are both BSB buses and as BSB only had two orange ones, I suspect that Vicky is the RH one as the mirrors look to be different colours...as they are today! :D

This is Vicky or her identical twin. There's no way of knowing for sure although there does appear to be a dent near the upper mast mount...as there is on Vicky!

Ansgar at the firestation dug this picture out for me from deep in the Regional website.
