THE GM 8366 PAGE

PHOTOS OF AN EXILE FAR AWAY -
GREATER MANCHESTER 8366 now R.I.P.

The owners of GM 8366 jave decided not to repair her so her burial is shortly. Following are some photos of her in service in her heyday.

This superb Atlantean currently operates a service from Sandyport in Nassau
in the Bahamas to Cable Beach Hotels. The following are a selection of
photos taken this week.

They have been cut down in size so they should load reasonably fast but if you
have problems we would appreciate knowing on our discussion board so that
we can take remedial action.

We also have a problem in identifying an air valve and fuel pump and photos
of these are shown at the bottom and we would be most grateful if someone
can tell us the type of valve and the type of pump. Put the information on the
discussion board please.

8366 is here entering the turning circle at Old Towne, Sandyport. Sandyport is a 150 acre resort with timeshares, apartments, condominiums, hotel rooms and plots for
sale. It has its own lakes and river and every house has a boat dock which has
water access to the ocean.

when the handbrake is released. We would welcome details on our discussion
board of anybodys experience in repairing this valve.
We would also welcome knowing where to get one.
