With shine dazzling the camera, Ribble 777, ARN777C rests in Manchester Chorlton Street Bus Station after arrival on an X50 from Morecambe via Preston. The Leyland Leopard PSU3/3RT with Plaxton Panorama I C49F coachwork was the the third of twenty all new in April 1965, along with five following for Standerwick.
777 was also third of eight in the batch which passed to United, in this case in December 1976 as 1182. After withdrawal in March 1978, it's documented passing to four dealers in succession from the following month, meeting its demise after arrival at the final one in July 1979.
