Gillett Bros, Quarrington Hill, 6301UP, an A E C Reliance 4MU3RA built in 1963 with Plaxton Highway B55F bodywork.
Taken in revised livery at Bishop Auckland before running to Hartlepool. The blind had been modified from West Hartlepool by painting out the "West". The bus stop shows evidence of three operators using that stand: G & B Service (actually Gillett Bros) to Spennymoor Coxhoe Thornley Wingate W Hartlepool - the bus had eliminated West but the bus stop had not!), Service 69 (operated by Trimdon MS) to Spennymoor Ferryhill Sedgefield Stockton, and OK Motor Services to Coundon Gate Binchester Byers Green Newfield.
