History

  • Start of service: 1976 (Empresa Cabrero, S.A. nº164)
  • Withdrawal: 2002 (Empresa Cabrero, S.A. nº164)

This bus, preserved by ARCA, belonged to a bus operator from Valladolid named Cabrero, S.A., which kept several interurban and private services, among them the shuttle service for workers between Valladolid city and Fasa-Renault factories. It was a special service working only as shift changes took place. The Pegaso 6035-4, together with the Barreiros 6000, were fit for this service requiring high capacity vehicles to move workers during a limited span of time.

The service lasted from 1976 to 2002, when a total of 65 operator’s vehicles were replaced by new buses. All these vehicles went to a car-dealer near Valladolid and some of them are still there: nºs 134, 139 and 164 (all scrapped in year 2008)

During year 2005 the association ARCA acquired nº 164 with the aim of preservation, but it was not until April 28th 2006 that it could be taken to Barcelona. See a photo gallery reporting the trip here.
