YF714 is a 1927 Guy FBB with Vickers B35R body. It operated around Penzance in the late 1920s and is the sole survivor of the fleet having spent some 40 years as a caravan near Perranporth after withdrawal from service in 1931.
In 1972 it was recovered for preservation but no work was started on it until 1997. It returned to the road in 2013 at events in the SW and is part of the Colin Billington collection and is painted in original G.W.R livery and carries fleet number 1268. Such vehicles were the predecessor of Western National Omnibus Company.
