The former Kippax and District Leyland PD3/1 / Roe 6237UB spent its later years with the Londonderry and Lough Swilly company, from whom it was repatriated in 1983 as a candidate for the West Yorkshire Transport Museum. It was stored for a while outside a shed in the Carlinghow Mills complex at Batley along with a number of other unrestored vehicles, there only being enough undercover space for a few fully restored ones.
Alongside is JUB303E which was originally a Stanley Hughes hire vehicle and spent its first season with Ledgards. Unfortunately a need to vacate this property and other storage sites to be replaced by a less generous building in Idle near Bradford meant 6237UB went for scrap not long after this picture was taken.
