Doncaster Corporation 385, BHJ828, a Sunbeam W with Park Royal H30/26R body. BHJ828 was new in August 1945 to Southend Corporation Transport as their number 131, with a utility body built to the 'relaxed specification' with upholstered seats. In January 1954, just ahead of the closure of the Southend trolleybus system, it was sold, along with the rest of the 9 vehicle batch, to Doncaster Corporation.
In 1958 (after this photo was taken) it was fitted with a new Roe H34/28R body, then in 1962 as the Doncaster system was in turn abandoned, the chassis was scrapped and the body transferred to Daimler CVG6 184, 584HDT.
