VRs IN NON-PCV USE IN CENTRAL ENGLAND

This page shows the many VRs currently in non-passenger carrying roles in Central England. Where the vehicle history has been added to the site, click on the registration number to link to it, otherwise information is temporarily restricted to what you see on this page. Please let me know if you own (or know someone who owns) a VR in Non-PCV use that I don't know about. I would also be very pleased to receive more recent photographs of any of these VRs to include here.
