Southend 311, PHJ950, a Leyland PD3/6 with Massey L35/33R body new in 1958.
Considered by the driving staff, if not the conductors, to be the best PD3s in the fleet, the six PD3s which arrived in 1958 were real workhorses, lovely to drive and produced a fair turn of speed on the open road. Usually allocated to specific car workings where their extra capacity was needed, they notched considerable mileages, often over 40,000 per year and were usually 'rested' on Sundays except in the height of summer when crowds flocked to the sea front.
