Eastern Counties VR179, OPW179P, a Bristol VRTSL3/6LX built in 1976 with ECW H43/31F bodywork, on extended hire to United AS in 1977.
The view is really illustrating the old bus station at Middlesbrough rather than the much more modern bus. The trainer LD is parked on Park Street (demolished in preparation for new development). The stand on the left had another access road on its left (parallel to this one) and that was the bus station. Buses came right up to you, front and behind, and I hope the cramped but almost cosy atmosphere comes through on the shot.
