Bradford City Transport 16, FKY16, an AEC Regent III 9612E with Weymann H33/26R body, new in 1949. Seen here, in either 1966 or 1967, climbing Horton Bank on its way from the City to Queensbury.
A little further up the gradient would ease somewhat and the bus would pass its home depot at Horton Bank Top to its right. Very recently outshopped by Thornbury Works - note the richness of the blue and the shiny silver paint underneath - it would sadly be withdrawn in 1969 and after being stored for a while was sold the following year to Autospares, up on the hilltops above Bingley, for scrap.
