Last Barton vehicle goes into preservation

The vehicle recently secured for preservation is ex Barton 648 E648 DAU, a DAF MB230 with Plaxton Paramount coachwork. New in 1988, NABS located and secured the vehicle for fellow preservationist Simon Barton in whose care the vehicle now is.
It was with Copelands at Stoke on Trent and still retains their colours.

There will be many months of restoration ahead by the NABS team but it will be worth it as 648 is the very last vehicle purchased by Barton before absorption into the Trent fleet.
