History of ABC 600 (N600ABC)

N600 ABC is a DAF SB220 with Northern Counties Paladin bodywork. It was new in February 1996 to ABC Travel (Garnett, Ainsdale ) then passing through CMT, GTL, Stagecoach Merseyside (as their 26006), then sold to Isle Coaches in August 2006.

Isle Coaches prepared the vehicle for service to their usual high standards and operated the vehicle up until the end of 2015, when it was withdrawn due to the new DDA regulations applying to single deck buses.

It was purchased for preservation by the 600 Group who have rallied it extensively since. In preservation the bus has received a replacement floor during the early part of 2017 and a full repaint into original livery in early 2018. In 2020 the bus was taken off the road with mechanical issues but in 2022 the bus received an overhauled turbo and returned to the road.
