Mexborough and Swinton 8, FWX892, was the second of the 1947 batch of post war fleet renewals. Having the more rounded bodywork than the 1943 deliveries, it was still on the Sunbeam W chassis rather than the later F4, one of which can be seen following. At the closure of the system this vehicle's chassis appears not to have been sold for further use elsewhere.
Note the bracket arm overhead still at 18 inch spacing. Substantial sections of overhead retained this, rather than the more modern 24 inch spacing, right to the end.
