Preserved Sunderland 46, WBR246, one of the final batch of Atkinsons 46-48 soon after it was bought for preservation, still in Tyne and Wear PTE livery and carrying the PTE number 1846.
The survival rate of the final batch has been quite high as 46, seen here, is preserved,
whilst keeping a low profile as well as 48. Even 47 survived many years after withdrawal by Tyne and Wear PTE, gradually rotting away at North's.
