Former Todmorden J.O.C. 18, HWY36, a Leyland Titan PD2/1 with Leyland L27/26R body, new in 1950.
Renumbered 351 on the takeover by Calderdale J.O.C. it was withdrawn almost immediately afterwards and sold to Mulley's Motorways, Ixworth, passing to Malcolm Exelby of Bromyard in 1977 for preservation.
It is exactly fifty years ago that Todmorden J.O.C. ceased to exist, and to mark the occasion Malcolm brought 18 up all the way from Herefordshire to give some of his family members from Todmorden the opportunity to relive a T.J.O.C bus ride to Keighley and back. Here it is seen returning from Keighley, climbing the long hill out of Oxenhope onto Cockhill Moor.
