Nearly a matching pair

Two DMS class Fleetlines ply their trade in central London. The one nearer the camera spening its entire life with London Transport, the one further away enjoying its third stint in the Capital. In fact the open top [The former DMS1683] had been new to LT in 1974 and arrived back for the Bexleybus operation after working for Western SMT and Clydeside Scottish in between. It is seen here with London Sightseeing Tours following sale by LT after the Bexley operation was scaled down following tender losses. After working in the UK it was exported to the United States where it worked for Big Apple Tours before being scrapped in 1997, some six years after D2532 succombed to the cutters torch.
