Todmorden J.O.C. 1, NWW90E, a Leyland Leopard L1 with Willowbrook DP43F body, new in 1967.
On the takeover by Calderdale J.O.C. on 5th September 1971 it became 326, becoming West Yorkshire P.T.E. 3326 from 1974. Withdrawn in 1982 it was sold at Central Motor Auctions at Rothwell and presumed scrapped.
Seen here arriving in Todmorden from Burnley and about to turn into the Market Ground (later known as the Bus Station !). This must have been one of the last L-series Leopards produced, since by then the slightly heavier duty PSU4-series had taken over as the shorter Leopard option. The L-series could be recognised by the eight-stud wheels and smaller diameter wheelnut guard rings (as per the Tiger Cub), as opposed to the PSU4's ten-stud wheels and larger guard rings.
