GMT 4744, FNE744D a 1966 Daimler Fleetline CRG6LX with MCW H43/32F bodywork originally MCTD 4744.
Although being coy about its destination this was on the 299 Timperley circular. This was the last day of operation of the old Altrincham bus station, the following day the new Interchange (itself subsequently replaced) was opened and the motley collection of ex-municipal and North Western vehicles which had been operating from Altrincham depot for the previous few months were replaced by a fleet of GMT standards, some drafted in from other depots, to create a new image. The previous journey on this service was operated by a former Manchester CVG6, on which we had travelled, an interesting experience as we got the impression the Altrincham driver was unfamiliar with pre-selector gearboxes, to say the least.
