483002 Ryde St John's Road 28 May 2013

Out of use for nearly a decade, 483002 Raptor is pictured outside Ryde St John's Road depot on a very rainy 28 May 2013. Devoid of all numbers, this former London Transport unit is now surplus to requirements of the Isle of Wight, and although it was repainted into LT livery, along with the rest of the fleet, years of standing out in the open means it is now gathering a coating of green mold, especially on the windows.
