Fylde Blue Bus at Fairhaven
Ex-Fylde Blue Bus Leyland Atlantean number 71 (OJI 4371) on the Inner Promenade at Fairhaven whilst operating route 100, a complimentary service between St Annes and Lytham Hall operated by the Ribble Vehicle Preservation Trust for visitors to the "Lytham Vintage Bus day 2019" event.

When new in November 1977, this bus was numbered 85 in the Fylde Borough Transport fleet, carried the registration EBV 85S and was painted blue and white. Following deregulation of the bus industry in 1986, the “Fylde Borough” fleet name was replaced by “Blue Buses” on and a new livery was introduced of two-tone blue. The bus was overhauled and refurbished in 1991 and given a new fleet number (71) and registration (OJI 4371). It continued to operate until 2004 when it was retired from service and acquired for preservation.
