DSCF8749 Former Southern Vectis DDL 50 and YWG 109 (FLJ 538) at the Isle of Wight Bus and Coach Museum - 6 July 2017
Thursday 6 July 2017 (1251) – Two open top double deckers on display at the Isle of Wight Bus and Coach Museum in Ryde.

DDL 50 is an Eastern Coachworks bodied Bristol K5G new to Southern Vectis in 1939 as a conventional covered top bus. It became an open topper in later years used on the route linking three of the island’s holiday resorts, Sandown to Ventnor via Shanklin. After retirement from carrying passengers it was used for tree lopping work. The upper deck seats are slatted wood.

Nearest the camera is YWG 109, a 1940 Bristol K5G with a 1954 Eastern Coachworks body. Now registered YWG 109, it is a 1940 Bristol K5G with a 1954 Eastern Coachworks body that was new to Hants and Dorset Motor Services registered FLJ 538. Its original registration was lost along the way resulting in the re-registration.
