In view of the demolition of the old Bradford Thornbury depot, this shot of out of service BCT vehcles may evoke a few memories. The three vehicles are a Weymann bodied trolley from Bradford's last batch of new BUTs and a pair of Weymann bodied AEC Regent IIIs minus bonnet assembly and engines.
The main works were in the building behind the buses and it was common practice to see semi-derelict withdrawn vehicles in this location. Often they were being stripped for spares and just occasionally would be be rebuilt and returned to service.
