Stagecoach Cumberland N130 VAO at Sandbach - 28 Mar 2001
Wednesday 28 March 2001 (approx 1530) - Stagecoach Cumberland 130 (N130 VAO), working the 0720 Aberdeen to London National Express service 590, seen at Sandbach Service Area in Cheshire (1528-1602). Intermediate points served were Dundee (0840-0850), Perth (0920), Glasgow (1035-1100), Hamilton (1125), Carlisle (1300), Milton Keynes (1815), Golders Green (1905) with an arrival in Victoria of 1930. I travelled on this coach, a Plaxton Expressliner bodied Volvo B10M new in 1995, from Aberdeen to Milton Keynes. We left Aberdeen at 0722 and arrived Milton Keynes at 1817! Cumberland also operated the Whitehaven to London service 570, with the drivers and coaches interworking. There was a driver changeover at Carlisle on this trip. I believe they were based at Whitehaven.
