Preserved Manchester trolleybus 1344, ONE744, a BUT9612T with Burlingham H32/28R bodywork awaits its next turn of duty. In keeping with Manchester's policy of supporting local firms whenever possible, the chassis of this batch were assembled at Crossley's Stockport factory. Their Burlingham bodies were, of course, built at Blackpool whilst Ashton's eight similar trolleys carried bodies built by Bond at Wythenshawe.
Clearly visible is the white 'O' which was carried by Manchester's trolleybuses to remind drivers of following trolleys not to overtake. This was affixed to the rear offside corner panel although the height at which it was applied varied.
Ahead of 1344 in the queue are South Shields 204, CU3593, a 1937 Weymann-bodied Karrier E4, and Liege 425, 5425P, a 1932 Fabrique Nationale with Fabrique Nationale B26D+30 body.
