1968 GMT Leopard/East Lancs 5084, ex-Stockport 404 KDB404F about to work the 17.15 (?) Manchester Piccadilly-Cheadle (Councillor Lane) 193, a peak-hours only express route.
By the 1980s these vehicles were almost exclusively crew-operated, never having been very popular as OMO buses and at this time the bus was probably in its last few weeks of service. The "C" on the windscreen denotes allocation to Charles St, the ex-North Western depot in Stockport. Some of this batch saw further use with Eynons of Trimsaran.
