History of Mainline 601 (G601NWA)

601 was new to SYTs Greenland garage in may 1990 and was part of a strong batch of Volvo B10Ms ordered, 601 being the very the first with the Alexander PS body in the UK. They were intended for routes 93/51 and were delivered in Sheffield Mainline livery, a branding used by SYT in the 90s. 

It was converted to a training bus and ended it's service life in Glasgow. It was first preserved in the South of England.

601 has seen some restoration work already but there is still a long list of jobs before a return to the road. The bus passed to its current owners in January 2018. The plans are to restore 601 as new into Sheffield Mainline.
