The Back End of the Bus

JYG742, a Bristol LL5G with ECW B39R body. Delivered in 12/50 to Keighley-West Yorkshire Services Ltd as no. K442, this entered service in 5/51 and was renumbered to KSGL 22 in 5/54.
In 3/64 it had a final overhaul, at which time the front, two-piece, Tilling style indicator was altered to a side by side display with 3 track route number blind; the rear boot was panelled over and the (2 piece) rear indicator removed completely. Withdrawn in 2/66 it passed to Norths, dealer, Sherburn in Elmet and then to Drury (Northern) Ltd of Huddersfield, a contractor that painted it into this black and orange livery and numbered it 46. In this view it was parked up for the weekend at South Kirkby, south of Wakefield, but by 8/69 it was working at Huby, south of Harrogate. It went for scrap in 3/71.
