257 (3) (MP 257), N907 ETM, Mercedes-Benz 709D, Plaxton Body (B27F), 1995 (t.1995)
At the same time as the previous photos no.257, H407 FGS, there was another Mercedes-Benz minibus, this time a 709D with Plaxton B27F body, also carrying the number 257, albeit MP 257 (N907 ETM). L&D's numbering system was getting well confusing!!! The bus doesn't display its fleet number as yet here, as it has only just been delivered. It is seen when brand new in 1995 at Showbus that year, all ready to enter service with Gade Valley in Hemel Hempstead.
