Now enjoying its senior years in leafy Cheshire
Our 1995 Volvo Olympian was a regular campaigner in Selby up to 2010. She began her working life with Selby and District, a subsidiary company of the Caldaire Group. The Caldaire Group was originally a subsidiary of the West Riding Automobile Company, prior to nationalisation and absorption by the Transport Holding Company in 1967. Twenty years after it returned to private ownership with most of the former Yorkshire Woollen District routes becoming Yorkshire Buses.
Caldaire Holdings was sold to British Bus in 1995, with the Arriva cow horns being foisted on N621 KUA by 1999. She remained at Selby depot till 2010, when she became a ‘pool bus’.
Today, N621 KUA has been shorn of the cow horns, moving to The Dairy County (Cheshire). She is gainfully employed by Vale of Llangollen subsidiary GHA Coaches, and wears a fetching blue and cream livery. A colour scheme which, no less, is reminiscent of Express Dairies’ and Dale Farm’s milk floats.
