Todmorden J.O.C. 4, NWW88E, a Leyland Leopard L1 with Willowbrook B43F body, new in 1967.
Carrying its intended fleet number 324 in anticipation of the takeover by Calderdale J.O.C. on 5the September 1971 it became West Yorkshire P.T.E. 3324 in 1974. Withdrawn in 1981 it passed to the Walton Play Association, Liverpool, and to Wigley, Carlton for scrap in 1983. Similar vehicle NWW89E is now preserved.
Seen departing Todmorden Market Ground for Burnley. The wooden hut behind the bus was the inspectors' and enquiry office, another slightly larger wooden hut with facilities for the crews was across the far side of the Market Ground beside the river. Unfamiliar Halifax-based drivers just passing through but wanting to make use of the crew hut facilities would usually be treated with deeply suspicious looks and a stony silence by most of the indigenous Todmorden drivers sat in there - as though one had walked into someone's home uninvited !
