The Back End of the Bus

Rear view of CIE P29, ZD7169, a 1948 Leyland Tiger OPS3 with a CIE B39F body. It was part of a batch of 30, P1-30, withdrawals of which began in 1962 and included this example.
Apparently, like sister P28, it had a short spell as a towing vehicle ("Tow Car"), but by July 1964 when this photo was taken it was also completely out of use and lying outside Galway depot having been robbed of its engine and seats. The luggage compartment on the roof was of a particularly "interesting" design, even when compared with later CIE Tigers.

Photo taken by Trevor Leach, July 1964, Galway Depot
