592 was new to Stagecoach Viscount being part of the batch that were the last ever step entrance buses bought New for Stagecoach Cambridgeshire and one of the last batches delivered to the group as a whole.
592 entered service at Peterborough depot in 1998 for the Stagecoach express network that was pretty fast back then, she was allocated to Peterborough depot but spent the majority of her time out-stationed at March depot.
The network was pretty big covering routes such as:
Peterborough to Cambridge via March and Ely.
Cambridge to Kings Lynn via Ely, March and Wisbech (the latter now route 46 with Stagecoach Norfolk )
Cambridge to Peterborough via Huntingdon, and out as far as Bury St Edmund's.
592 was repainted into ‘beachball/swoops’ livery 2002/2003 and transferred to Stagecoach Cambridge based at Ely but out-stationed mainly at March on the X9 service between March and Cambridge as well as other services.
In 2010 she was transferred with her sisters and along with R***JVA batch to Fenstanton depot as part of the shuffle removing nearly all step entrance deckers from Cambridge depot. From here 592 moved to Bedford in 2012 and finally to East Kent in 2013/14 where she finished up being passed onto Ensign dealers and finally into preservation enjoying her debut at Showbus in 2016
