New to SYPTE in January 1985 as fleet number 76 for use in the Coachline fleet and was one of a batch of three. Originally registered B976 DWG it was re-registered 476 HDT.
The batch of three Dennis Dorchester coaches were originally ordered by Leicester City Transport but were diverted to SYPTE in exchange for three East Lancs bodied Dennis Dominators.
In Summer 2017 restoration work was completed with the painting into original SYPTE 'Coachline' livery and the application of fleet name vinyls.
During Autumn 2017 final preparations to take the coach for MOT will be carried out.
