Stagecoach South East Olympians continue their lives….

With the recent sad news that some Stagecoach South East Volvo Olympians have been withdrawn for scrap, there also comes fantastic news after some research by ourselves that a lot have actually been saved, some sold on to see further service and some even preserved by Private Owners and preservation groups!
We thought that we would helpfully list the Volvo Olympians which have been saved which were still in service as the final wave of withdrawal came. Please note this list has been made as accurate as our knowledge using only our own knowledge as well as external sources. We have listed only the last remaining Olympians in service with Stagecoach South East when the most recent bulk of withdrawal came.
