Seen in Eccles on a short working on the service to Levenshulme is North Western 512, FDB512, one of two Willowbrook B44R bodied Atkinson Alpha chassis delivered in 1952 and entering service in 1953 after being exhibited at the 1952 Commercial Motor Show.
This one was a PL745H whilst 513 was a PL744H which was found to be underpowered and was fitted with a 5HLW in May 1953. Both originally had single rear wheels being converted to twin in October 1955.
