2. BAG129
Scrapyard/dealer line-up with in the centre Ribble Motors Leyland Titan Highbridge Double Deck, I think 2657, CCK829, built 1948. Oh how I wish I had taken more pictures at this place; there must have been at least fifty buses. The single decker my partner in crime is leaning on is HD5802 and the white double decker is BAG129. The more interesting one looks like the single decker with the white roof, no doubt the connoisseurs out there will know were its from etc.
