7. EDT704
Doncaster ceased trolleybus operation in 1963. Like many new and rebuilt trolleybuses of the 1950s, they had well-built Roe bodies and eager to save money, Doncaster hated the idea of scrapping bodies which were not life-expired. Here we see two examples of this re-use of former trolleybus bodies. Doncaster 95, EDT704, was originally an all-Leyland PD2/1 of 1947 and given the body of trolleybus 397. 172, 172GDT, was a new Daimler CVG6 chassis fitted given the body of trolleybus 370.

This photograph is a little misleading as at first sight the bus appears to be restored. In fact it's a testimony to quality of presentation and traditional style of Portsmouth's livery that make it look preserved. I believe the advert indicates its true role, which was a driver training vehicle. The preserved image is enhanced further by the fitment of an old Portsmouth blind dating from the era when motorbus services used letters.

747. RUF193
Sadly, not all preserved Southdown buses have survived. This one was particularly low-profile, even though I saw more of it than most because it was kept for a while at our premises in Greenfield. 793, RUF193, was a Leyland Titan PD2/12 with an East Lancs H31/28RD body and, as I apparently saw it in my bus-spotting days I suspect it was based at the western end of Southdown's territory.

Oldham 412, NBU512, was from a batch of five Crossley-bodied PD2s bought by Oldham Corporation. They were attractive buses, even more so when new as they carried poppy red lining.

879. 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.

A Leyland PD2 with what looks like a Massey Lowbridge body. Can anybody identify this bus please.
