Leeds 567, which had a Union Construction Company body seating 42/28 (in Leeds) on E.M.B. Maximum traction bogies, is seen leaving Tong Road and entering Wellington Road, at the junction with Oldfield Lane and Copley Hill as it returns to Halton after a trip to New Inn, Wortley.
It had entered service in Leeds in April 1955, having arrived in July 1951, and was withdrawn in October 1957. It had been fitted with Metropolitan Vickers OK9B controllers replacing the G.E.C. KB5 ones in June 1955, as had, between February 1955 and July 1956, all of the G.E.C. equipped Feltham trams which entered service.
It was burned at the yard of Johnson's of Churwell in April 1959.
