Sir Lindsay Parkinson (contractor) EFV619, a Leyland Royal Tiger PSU1/15 with Leyland C41C body, new to Standerwick, Blackpool as its 129 in 1951.
Ribble's and Standerwick's Royal Tiger coaches (along with those from many other BET companies) were particularly popular with the large national contractors, but though it gave them a further brief extension of their lives this seemed a rather ignominious and disrespectful end for such a once fine coach.
