Oldham 412, NBU512, was from a batch of five Crossley-bodied PD2s bought by Oldham Corporation. They were attractive buses, even more so when new as they carried poppy red lining. However, the body design was susceptible to corrosion and after the problems overhauling the first, the cost of doing the others was deemed prohibitive and they were withdrawn.
On 4th February 1970, 412 is dumped outside Oldham's garage. It is owned by SELNEC but with the exception of 409, none of these actually ran for SELNEC and had very short lives.
