Redroute Buses DAF/Wrightbus Cadet

Redroute Buses of Gravesend bought a 39-seater Cadet in September 2015. It had originated with Solent Blueline.

Bus history

This history is incomplete. It is being assembled as I garner information from a variety of sources. Particularly useful have been:
  • LOTS for accurate data, in TLB, LBM, Fleetbooks
  • for VIN data
