The Back End of the Bus

Photo © John Kaye. Please do not re-post without permission.

Preserved Plymouth Corporation 397, HJY297, which was seen at Winkleigh is a Leyland PD2/12 with a Leyland H30/26R body new in late 1953 showing the modifications to the rear platform area. Note also the opening ventilation windows in the rear emergency exit and the rearmost upper deck side window which has been panelled over. This shows also the rear dome rain guttering fitted to Leyland bodies to minimise rainwater from the roof dripping on to the platform entrance area. It is now registered ADV852A.
