Blue Line (Samuel Morgan) RWY891F, a Guy Arab V with Roe H41/32F stands at the back of Stainforth depot. It was new in August 1967 and, although bought by SYPTE with the business in March 1979, it was, by then, out of service. In fact, out of the six Guy Arab Vs purchased by Blue Line and Reliance between 1963 and 1969, only 891GWT, the first of these, was still serviceable at the time of the takeover.
Sister vehicle RWY892F in the Reliance fleet was one of the two buses involved in the so-called 'suicide pact' when they both came off the road on Johnny Moor Long Lane within hours of one another on the last day of Blue Line/Reliance operation.
