It is with great sadness...
That I announce the retirement of STO 9131, 9133 and 9224
These coaches were found stripped of parts at the STO Hull garage last night around 11:00 during volunteering for La Grande Guignolée des Médias and confirmed dead by a supervisor.
These coaches will be forever remembered for their longevity and as very reliable and comfortable.
Please take the time to remember these coaches.
Rest in pieces 9131, 9133 and 9224
We were unable to obtain pictures of 9224, but it has been confirmed as dead. It can be seen through the driver's window in the second picture
No funeral will be held
Here are the descriptions for the pictures below:
1- 9131 awaits scrapping on "death row" (notice the seat under the front wheel)
2- 9133 await scrapping stripped of all valuable parts (notice 9224 can be seen [also retired] through the drivers window)
3- 9133 is seen from another angle (again, notice the seat under the front wheel)
4- The front mirror of 9133 is seen, almost broken off.
More photos of retired Classics and of 7901 can be found on my Flickr photostream.
Could a wiki editor please mark these coaches RETIRED.
