An interesting selection of non-PCVs - part 2

Our regular guest blogger Philip Slynn is back with more excellent photos from his archives, in this two part feature we will be taking a look at a very interesting selection of buses which have gone on to work in various guises as non-PCVs after their life in passenger service. Most of the photos were taken in the Peterborough/Cambridgeshire area - enjoy!
