It’s been a good while since Aintree Coachline operated any step-entrance deckers so the recent appearance of this ex-Hong Kong tri-axle Leyland Olympian has been something of a turn-up.
On an otherwise overcast day, a half-hour spell of bright sunshine between 4.15 and 4.45pm today gave the perfect (and lucky!) opportunity to catch it on Great Howard Street at 4.30 working a school contract from Crosby, a journey that has regularly been covered by Aintree’s tri-axle BCI Enterprise.
BIG 5943 was previously with Carver, Ellesmere Port and has carried several index marks since arriving in Britain from Hong Kong where it was new to China Light & Power as FC 7695 in 1992.
