Nick Larkin reports on a Volvo B10B restored by a major operator on behalf of a young enthusiast

East Yorkshire has restored a 1994 Volvo B10B for its young owner, fulfilling a promise.

The Alexander Strider B51F bodied bus was one of a batch of similar vehicles delivered to Caldaire Holdings, which owned several former National Bus Company Yorkshire companies.

The now restored example, believed to be the only survivor of the batch, was new to Yorkshire Woollen in a red and cream livery.
