Huddersfield 629, KVH229 a 1956 BUT 9641T with East Lancs H40/32R body.
Seen here on the morning of the last day of trolleybus operation in Huddersfield about to depart from Waterloo for the long cross town journey to Outlane.
Later that afternoon 629 would take part in the final procession of trolleybuses with specially decorated 623 bringing up the rear with a party of civic dignitaries and officials.
However, 623 wasn't the last trolleybus to carry passengers as, after the procession had finished in St. Georges Sq. 629 was allowed to work back to Longroyd Bridge depot with a full compliment of enthusiasts on board.
