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 before being offered for sale to some trust members in early 2018.


601 has seen some restoration work already but there is still a long list of jobs before a return to the road.  The plans are to restore 601 as new into Sheffield Mainline.
