Mayne of Manchester were for many years the only small independent to run into Manchester on a joint service with Manchester Corporation. In contrast to Manchester's allegiance to Leyland and Daimler products, Mayne was an AEC fan for many years. Typical of their later Regents is 8860VR a 1963 AEC Regent V with East Lancs bodywork.
These were the only 30ft rear entrance buses based in Manchester as the corporation never bought rear entrance buses to the maximum dimensions This bus is one of a pair the other is now in Japan. Happily this one is safe in the Manchester Transport Museum
