Photo taken 1993, Heart of the Pennines Rally, Halifax
12. 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!

The exit doors were seldom used and disliked by crews and passengers and were eventually removed and a bench seat fitted in the space. The orange dot was to indicate that the bus was OMO. "Lazy" destination displays were meant to make the driver's duties easier!
