On the right is Derby trolleybus 175, RC8575, a 1945 Sunbeam W with Park Royal H56R bodywork. More interestingly, on the left is one of the ex Huddersfield Karriers that ended its days as a public convenience for Epsom racecourse.
Unfortunately it carried no clue as to its identity. Later it arrived at the West Yorkshire Transport Museum at Ludlam Street for investigation in to its prospects for restoration, but the structure was completely rotten and held together with beams through the lower saloon windows to stop the bowing. I believe it was eventually dismantled as it was in grave danger of collapsing completely. I don't know what happened to the chassis.
