Halifax J.O.C. 211, LJX211, an AEC Regent V 2D3RA with Metro Cammell H40/32F body, new in 1960.
211 is seen leaving Huddersfield for Halifax on jointly operated route 43. At the time roadworks resulted in outbound services following a diversion, and I believe it was ascending Trinity Street (which must have been one way upwards only for the duration) and about to turn right along Portland Street to regain its normal route. The destination shows 'Crossfield Bus Station' - the official name of Halifax Bus Station, but totally confusing to anyone outside of Halifax. This was only supposed to be displayed on local Corporation services, but crews would often just display whichever came first on the blind. The side blind still shows 'Huddersfield'. The conductor may just have forgotten if they were running a bit late, but many Halifax crews just refused to set side and rear blinds, where fitted.
