The Eden (Summerson Bros) acquired VUP327 from Economic (G Anderson) of Whitburn in whose fleet it had been numbered 1. It was a Leyland Tiger Cub PSUC1/1 with a 1957 Crossley B44F body on Park Royal frames, the chassis having been new in 1955.
It is pictured on a misty winter's afternoon, in the corner of the company's premises where withdrawn buses were often parked and left to deteriorate slowly until, reluctantly one imagines, the family finally had to part with them. There are two other photos of the same bus at the same place on the site - see the Fleet Index.
