Chambers refurbished & route branded President W517 LGH - photo special

As we have previously reported, Go-Ahead are currently updating their Suffolk based Chambers fleet with 21 ex Go-Ahead London and konectbus Plaxton President bodied Volvo B7TL's.

Yesterday our friend and regular correspondant David Bell visited Bury St Edmunds and Sudbury where he found one of the recent additions operating, the vehicle he saw and travelled on was L434 W517 LGH which as well as having a full interior refurbishment and repaint into Chambers new livery now carries route branding for their main services between Bury St Edmunds and Colchester...
