Another image at Midland Red's Carlyle Works in early 1963, this time a rear view of a DD11, 5283 5283HA, a Daimler CRG6LX Fleetline / Alexander H44/33F before entering service at Sandacre Street garage, Leicester 4/63.
It moved to Birmingham in 1972 and therefore was taken over by WMPTE and was finally with withdrawn from the former Corporation Lea Hall garage 10/78.
Next to the Fleetline was Duple C30C bodied C1 3305, which spent most winters in store, this time in between service at Hereford for a couple of months during autumn 1962 and moving to Banbury 4/63. It was new 4/49 and up until withdrawal in 1965 would have been quite acceptable to any passenger lucky enough to travel on it.
