Lancaster City Council 466, NTF466, a Daimler CVG6 / Northern Counties B35F. This bus probably needs no introduction, known locally as the "prison bus" and subsequently preserved by LCT. At one time it ran in blue livery, whether before or after this shot to be clarified.
The bus was new in 1952 along with 467 and 468, which were withdrawn in 1958. BLOTW shows it as originally B32R whereas my own notes have it as B36R. It was rebuilt in 1958 to B32F and subsequently in 1970 to B35F.
A number of ex Salford/GMT Atlanteans were acquired in 1978. Some were placed in service whilst others, one to the right of 466, were acquired for cannibalisation only. Lancaster didn't acquire a rear-engined double decker until 1978. Is this a record?
