(War Weekend 2017)
50164 is one of the oldest class 101 vehicles in preservation being released into traffic in 1956. After leading an uneventful career the vehicle gained “celebrity” status when it was painted in 1994 into green livery along with 59539 & 50160 (also both preserved), gaining the name “Daisy”.
50164 was preserved along with its green partner 50160 rather than being split after withdrawal in December 2003. This car was chosen as one of the best coaches in the line of available stock at Shoeburyness. It was chosen on the grounds of requiring the least amount of attention to return it to service, from both bodywork and mechanical angle.
