Representatives of three north-east municipalities stand side by side. South Shields 140, LCU112, is a Daimler CCG6DD with Roe H35/28R bodywork was new in April 1964. Alongside is Middlesbrough 99, JDC599, which was a Dennis Loline I with Northern Counties H36/31R bodywork. It was exhibited on the Northern Counties stand at the 1958 Earl's Court Motor Show and entered service in Middlesbrough on 5 November of that year, serving with the corporation until 1972; following withdrawal it operated for Bingorama in Scotland before being saved from the scrapman. Darlington 7, AHN451B, is a Daimler CCG5DD with Roe H33/28R bodywork; the newest of the trio, it dates from December 1964.
The 'dolly' in front of 99 is made from a typical Middlesbrough bus stop plate showing 'BUSTOP' vertically.
