Preston were quick to snap up a batch of Marshall bodied Leyland Panthers that came to Midland Red from an order placed by associate company Stratford Blue in 1971. Seen amid the concrete brutalism of Preston's famous bus station is Preston 238, AUE310J.
This was was originally going to be Stratford Blue 32 but was delivered to Midland Red as their 2032. In the event they were sold to Preston without turning a wheel for Midland Red. The idea of using end on parking when a good proportion of the fleet was rear entrance would have the Health and Safety brigade on the warpath today!
