This Mark 1 Leyland National, registered XNG 770S and carrying the Eastern
Counties fleet number LN770, was first registered on 1st July 1978, and was
initially allocated to Norwich depot. It also spent time working from Kings Lynn,
Ipswich and Lowestoft depots, latterly ending up with Rosemary Coaches, and
finally passing to Eastern National, although never actually working for them.

Eastern Counties ran a total of 85 Leyland Nationals, with LN770 being the last
mark 1 in operation. The bus was to be used as a source of spare parts for the
remaining few mark 1 Nationals operated by First Eastern National, but was
rescued by some of the Museum volunteers, and donated to the Museum.
The bus is currently on long term loan to Eastern Counties bus preservationist, Julian Patterson and is not on display at the Museum.
