5. HLW203
On a "dreich" Sunday at a deserted Uttoxeter Market Place, ex London Transport, RT216, HLW203, Stevenson's 10 rests between duties. The sign to the right reads that on Wednesdays these buses run from Balance Street, presumably when the market was taking place. I hesitate to say whether the chassis or Park Royal body was actually RT216 when new!
