J. Lehmann - 17.03.08

The last of the 343 Flyer E800 trolleybuses have been withdrawn from public service. The penultimate such use was on Ist July on route 6 with 5277 (replaced by 5307 when the former developed a problem) and the
final on 22nd July when 5300 operated on route 30. All of the last active examples were sold and removed from Potrero depot in October, except for the three preserved by the operator: 5148, 5300, 5345. The three
wear different liveries.
