Ashton-under-Lyne 88, YTE827, is a BUT 9612T with Bond H33/28R bodywork new in October 1956, as part of the last batch of new trolleybuses delivered. Seen here in Gorton operating a 218 service to Stalybridge, 88 remained in service until June 1966, some six months before the system closed. Similar vehicle 87 is preserved.
