Northern General 2099 was an AEC Routemaster with Park Royal H41/31F bodywork which suffered a series of identity changes over the years. New in March 1964 and bearing the registration RCN699 it was allocated to Consett depot. In January 1975 it was re-numbered 3083. It was sold in January 1980 and two months later it was purchased by Stephenson's of Spath who numbered it 28. In January 1983 it was re-numbered 52.
In September 1986 it was sold to Stagecoach for their Magicbus operation in Glasgow, numbered 617 and re-registered EDS508B. In 1991 it was re-purchased by Northern in 1991 and loaned to their enthusiasts' association. The registration PCN762 was transferred from a Royal Tiger coach and in 1992 it acquired its current livery. It operated in London for RM40 in 1994 and later received an AEC engine in place of its original Leyland unit. It was subsequently purchased by the late (and very much missed) Chris Moyes.
