OK, Bishop Auckland sent many coaches to Whitley Bay on 7 July 1973 and 129DPT represented subsidiary E Howe (OK Motor Services) of Spennymoor, which retained own licences. The late afternoon sun bounces from the shining AEC Reliance 2MU3RA, carrying early Plaxton Panorama C41F body new in May 1959.
The coach passed to the main OK, Bishop Auckland fleet in August 1975 and served till happily sold into preservation in November 1981. Howe had been an OK operating partner from early years and became a subsidiary in 1968.
