Halifax J.O.C. 253, ECP953D, an AEC Reliance 6MU3R with Pennine B39F body, new in 1966. Pictured as it lays over briefly at Shibden terminus before returning to town on a cold winter's day.
The driver would no doubt have been wearing overcoat, scarf and gloves as these Reliances - despite the improved 505 engine - tended to run cold much of the time. Roll on mealbreak and a chance to get warm !
May I take this opportunity to wish you all a Very Happy Christmas from here in Halifax, and may the New Year bring you good health and everything else you could wish for - and, as always, particular thanks to David L for making it all happen for us.
