Todmorden J.O.C. 22, BWU692H, a Leyland Leopard PSU4A/2R with Pennine B43F body, new in 1969.
Already carrying its intended fleet number 332 in anticipation of the takeover by Calderdale J.O.C. on 5th September 1971, it became West Yorkshire P.T.E. 3332 in 1974 by which time it had been transferred to Halifax.
Seen returning from Mankinholes, it would continue via Hollins Road and Burnley Road to Walsden where it would turn at the Waggon & Horses, then return via Hollins Road, Knowlwood Road and Burnley Road to Todmorden. This service only ran as three daytime journeys on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, only operating as far as Lumbutts, except for two journeys on Saturdays that continued to Mankinholes. Nowadays the service - operated by TLC - operates daily and continues beyond Mankinholes as a circular via Harvelin Park, Shaw Wood Road, Springside and Halifax Road to Todmorden (T6) or alternately as the opposite circular (T8), being hourly between them.
