Perryman's Buses Optare Versa On Service 60
Perryman's Buses Optare Versa On Service 60
One of twelve Optare Versa buses bought for a suite of services won by the Berwick-upon-Tweed based company, effective from August 2013. The route gains for this company led to the necessity for a new operating base in the Borders, at Charlesfield Industrial Estate near St Boswells. Previously, the service 60 linking Galashiels with Berwick-upon-Tweed, had been operated by First using both single deck and double-deck vehicles. These 11.7 metre Versas have been well-received by the travelling public in the area.

The vehicle is seen here just west of Gordon, about to pass Greenknowe Tower.
