SCT '61 Photo Index
This index covers Rossendale Joint Transport Committee, which was formed on the 1st April 1968 as an amalgamation of the fleets of Haslingden Corporation
and Rawtenstall Corporation
Only vehicles delivered new or second-hand after April 1968 are shown here - for views of buses in service with Rossendale that were new to Haslingden or Rawstenstall, see the index for that operator.

When Rawtenstall and Haslingden merged in 1968 the resulting operator was Rossendale Joint Transport Committee. This is the then-new fleetname as applied, almost certainly, to one of the PD2/1s of the batch 1-10 (KTE721-30)
