Vehicle Information:

 

B892 UAS was one of 9 Olympians to join the Highland Omnibuses fleet in February 1985. It was allocated to Inverness depot and initially carried fleet number J8 being renumbered J364 in September 1985.  As part of the privatisation of the Scottish Bus Group, Highland was sold to a consortium in mid 1991, and many newer vehicles were sold off.  B892 UAS joined the Ribble fleet in Lancashire, by then in Stagecoach ownership.  In 2004 it passed to Abus of Bristol and then in 2009 to Evans, also in Bristol. It was re-registered 473 FAE with Evans, reverting to its original registration on withdrawal and sale for preservation in 2016.
