History of SYPTE 2317 (A317XAK)

A317XAK is a Dominator with Northern Counties bodywork. It’s the only surviving example of the batch of 10 delivered to the SYPTE. Its chassis number is DDA165/666. It was new in November 1983 to SYPTE's Greenland Road garage where it operated in service until the closure of GR. In 1999 and was transferred to Olive Grove garage where it operated until being withdrawn in early 2006 and entered preservation shortly after. Due to the fairly large restoration ahead it remains in its 'as withdrawn' condition awaiting its turn.
