Eric Thompson Memorial Collection

Eastern Counties LL786, HWY727N, Leyland Leopard / Alexander Y Type. New in April 1975 as West Riding 387 (DP49F), acquired by ECOC in 1985.
Prior to de-regulation the following year and the privatisation of the NBC, NBC subsidiaries were around this time experimenting with non corporate liveries, hence this attractive cream and broad red band livery with large gold side fleetname and no sign of NBC symbols which unfortunately wasn't continued, ECOC went for a bizarre "modern" grey and white livery with red and orange upswept stripes instead.
