Blandford plate colours are not known. Swanage was previously a Southern National depot.
Fleet numbers are for effect only and may not have been allocated to the depot shown.
Newly painted in NBC poppy red, numbered 1457 and sporting a yellow Southampton disc, the former 1393 (UEL714) is in Grosvenor Square.
Buses still in Tilling green have been renumbered and given new style fleet names but in yellow rather than white. The mudguards have been painted green instead of the original black and the wheels grey.
These older Lodekkas originally had a destination display including a route via blind.
