Ribble replaced their famous Gay Hostess Atlanteans with a batch of Bristol VRL/LH6L with impressive ECW double deck coach bodywork. Seen here is OCK67K, a 1971 example, delivered as Standerwick 67.
Ribble found that these coaches were very unreliable compared to the Atlanteans and quickly sold them on. Tyne and Wear PTE bought some for the ferry service from Newcastle to the Tyne Commission quay.
