City Coach Co Leyland PD1/Roberts LD8, NVX305, seen on 28 February 1955 outside the Yorkshire Grey PH in Brentwood, with an all-Leyland PD2 behind - one of the FJN batch ordered by City and delivered in their livery, but here repainted Tilling green with Westcliff fleetnames. This is believed to have been the last double deck in City livery.
The Yorkshire Grey, a terminal point since London General came to Brentwood in 1923 and the site of Brentwood's first 'depot' (2 National Omnibus & Transport Co buses were kept in the yard at the rear) was demolished c.1958 and new shops built. Doone's Taxis still operate from roughly the same place out the back.
