200. PBU959
Oldham bought 90 PD2s with tin fronts. They had a variety of bodies, Roe being the favoured builder, but two orders featured Northern Counties bodies, such as PBU959. These didn't quite have the elegance of the Roe body and, when new, suffered by comparison as they weren't lined out, but they were attractive buses. This vehicle has just come back from overhaul at Stockport who made a very nice job of it and it retained many more original features than it would have done if overhauled at Oldham. Because it wasn't a full five-year recertification it has retained Oldham livery as more coats of paint would have been required to ensure the orange and white livery covered the old scheme.
