It was last repainted in April 1953 and was the only one of these cars to be painted in the red livery. Seen at the Half Mile Lane terminus it was withdrawn in April 1955 and was burned at Low Fields Road Permanent Way Yard in May 1955. Half Mile Lane is the road off to the left between Isles Service depot (Leyland Agents) and the row of houses. On the right is the Pavilion Cinema.
