Trent RC3734, a BMMO DON new in 1936 with a B36F Brush body fleet number 363.
Transferred to the ancillary fleet in in August 1952 and converted in the Central Works at Derby to a full front driver trainer with full dual controls. Renumbered 22 by April 1960, sold to Frank Cowley (Salford) in October 1960 and passed to a showman in 1962.
As a youngster in the 1950's I saw this vehicle on numerous occasions around Derby and was astounded at a bus with two steering wheels. I thought it was some new regulation!!
