United Auto 2806, PHN206F, seen in Park View, Whitley Bay in August 1975 was a Bristol RESL6G with ECW B46F body new in August 1967, which carried fleet number RS6 until January 1969.
It was sold to West Yorkshire Road Car in 1979 as 1127 but was sold for scrap the following year.
Here it appears to be arriving on route 343 from Cramlington or Morpeth. the county town being the most distant destination served by United stage service from Whitley Bay Bus Station, where it will arrive in about two minutes.
Inspiration came from another photo - WHN118 - taken a few yards further back almost exactly ten years earlier, and the realisation of how few photos I have from the seaside town where I spent many formative years. This is one of the rare cases on SCT61 where I much prefer the more modern vehicle, having driven the RELH6G version.
