This photo shows a selection of the vehicles at the Tameside Transport Collection's premises in the old tram depot and bus garage in Ashton, long since vacated and has been prompted by the recent restoration of Wilts and Dorset KSW 365 (HWV294), seen here in a blue livery. Prominent is Manchester Daimler 4127 (JND728) having some engine work.
To it's left is LUT Metro-Cammell-bodied Guy 43. Partly stripped of paint is former Rochdale AEC Regent V 305 (ODK705). Behind 4127 is Wigan PD2/30 4 (DEK106) with Massey body which had come from Stevenson's of Spath and beyond that Crosville Lodekka DLG 876 (833AFM) which has run more recently with Dreadnought Coaches in Alnwick. To the right is Manchester PD2 3524 with, behind, ex-Salford PD2 266 (JRJ266E), latterly GMT 3112.
