L839 FTX - Morley’s of Whittlesey No,839


New – Stolzenberg, Maesteg 1994


Bought by Morleys of Whittlesey 1998 to operate as a small coach, to be used on the 701 service on a Sunday, and school work. It was found to be too small for what they needed, Gretton’s of Peterborough had a Leyland Titan A920SYE, which Morleys wanted to go with their other Titans, so a deal was done, Morley’s gained A920SYE, and Gretton’s L839FTX.


L839FTX operated with Gretton’s for many years, happily plodding along, until bought by Tom Mortlock in 2015, he has taken it to several shows/rallies in the last five years, she has done just 131,800 miles from new, much mechanical work has been completed over winter, ready for the years ahead, and Tom is planning to get it repainted in the future into Morleys livery.
