Leeds 286 was one of six 'Pilcher' trams acquired from Manchester in 1948, after a trial car was purchased in 1946. Built in Manchester Corporation's Car Works in 1930-2 they seated 40/22 and were mounted on Peckham P35 trucks.
They were withdrawn between 1951 and 1954. 286 had been repainted into the red/cream livery three days before this photograph at the Hunslet terminus.
