Southdown Motor Services Ltd were a familiar bus operator in the southeast of England for many decades. In early 1980 they bought a batch of Bristol VRT's with Eastern Coach Works bodies. Here one is seen working into Tunbridge Wells on route 729, with a heavy load of passengers. The registration number is unclear, but it looks like EAP987V, or something near to that. Southdown was later bought by the Stagecoach group. Not to be confused with the independent operator Southdown PSV Ltd who run buses, as well as selling buses and doing engineering work on them.
