my 15

Trent barton are introducing new Optare Versas on service 15 from Ilkeston to Sawley on Saturday. The timetable is unchanged but in future it will be known as 'my 15'. One of the new buses was on display on Ilkeston Market Place this morning.
Service 15 is currently operated by Wright bodied Volvos.

This picture of a Plaxton bodied Leopard was taken in Feb 1983 when buses terminating in Ilkeston used to park on the Market Place. The earliest reference I have seen to service 15 (Long Eaton to Ilkeston) is in June 1929.
