Leeds Feltham 517 is seen at the extremity of the track in Easterly Road whilst on an L.R.T.L. Tour, with the Clock Cinema buildings and some photographers in the background. This had been Leeds 554 until 11th February 1959 when the two trams exchanged numbers.
When numbered 554, it had entered service on 30th November 1951, and the G.E.C. KB5 controllers had been replaced on 19th September 1955 by Metropolitan-Vickers OK9B ones. After withdrawal on 30th April 1959 it passed, in its 517 guise, to the Middleton Railway Preservation Society leaving Swinegate for Middleton on 26th March 1961. After being vandalised it was burnt on 20th April 1968.
