Portsmouth City Operator Index

Four of Portsmouth's 1935 batch of Leyland TD4/English Electric H50R had their lives extended by conversion to open top, to such a degree that they all entered preservation after withdrawal. 115, RV6358, was the first of the batch and also the first of the four converted to open top O26/24R, re-entering service in 7/53.
It is seen here at South Parade Pier shortly afterwards. All four were renumbered 5/58, 115 becoming no 5. It was withdrawn 9/71 entering preservation in 5/72. It was exported to the USA in 1986, returning to the UK in 1989.
