The preserved image is enhanced further by the fitment of an old Portsmouth blind dating from the era when motorbus services used letters.

Photo taken 1993, Heart of the Pennines Rally, Halifax
300. FHF451
In this instance I suspect one can actually say that the back end of the bus is more interesting than the front. The first production Atlantean in service, FHF451, has long been restored as Wallasey 1 in the unique sea green and cream livery with vintage style of fleetname (since 1983 I believe). In the fine sunshine that blessed the Greater Manchester Transport Society's 2014 event at Heaton Park I couldn't resist a shot which shows the very early style of single piece bonnet fitted to the first Atlanteans. You can't help but notice the huge rear route display!

Apart from the external blind and a few removable windows it appears to have been sympathetically adapted and thus capable of re-entering preservation. It also retains genuine YWD destination blinds.

In April 1974 on the formation of the West Yorkshire PTE, the Bradford City Transport fleet was renumbered by the addition of 2000 to the fleet number. Initially renumbering used the traditional gold transfers until the supplies of number 2 ran out after which many buses were carefully signwritten with gold paint in the correct style but without black edging. This practice soon ceased however and once supplies of the Halifax style numbers were available many blue buses received white (and in some cases black) small front numbers.
