Yet another ex-Halifax Nimbus, but a bit closer to home this time. 256, RJX256, was new in 1963, renumbered 356 in 1966, and then sold in February 1967 to Baddeley Bros., Holmfirth who numbered it 88. It, like most of the others, was repainted for its new owners by Halifax Corporation's paintshop as part of the deal - hence the 'Halifaxised' version of Baddeley's livery. It was written off in an accident and sold for scrap in 1971.
It is pictured here in Upperhead Row Bus Station, Huddersfield ahead of a Hanson's Reliance/Roe rebuild. The pinkish colour of the sky is actually how it was - just after this the heavens opened and I had to run for cover.
