Mayne eschewed early rear-engined double-deckers and went straight from AEC Regent Vs to bus grant Plaxton coaches after a gap of several years. Final Regent CXJ522C is seen a few minutes out from its city centre terminus on the Ashton New Road trunk route 213, amongst WWII damage and later neglect.
It was one of trio of 2D3RA models with Neepsend H41/32R bodies to service in August 1965.
