I was surprised to come across East Yorkshire 716, 9716AT, an AEC Bridgemaster 2B3RA built in 1962 with Park Royal H43/29F bodywork at United's Bishop Auckland depot and assumed it was there simply for disposal surrounded as it was by a number of out of service vehicles from the United fleet.
However comments on an image of an ex Crosville MW with United referred to three of these AEC Bridgemasters being sent for service during an acute vehicle shortage, two of which broke down en route, and one that lasted a single morning in service. Obviously a lucky time for my visit!
