RC9012 was an AEC Regal new to Trent in 1946 as their fleet number 746. Withdrawn in September 1960 it was converted in January 1961 to carry wheelchair passengers at the Leonard Cheshire home at Staunton Harold, near Melbourne, South Derbyshire.
The work was carried out in Trent Central Works by staff in their own time and was driven by a rota of 33 Trent drivers, again in their own time. It was used until 1971 being sold on to the NCB, it was reduced to a chassis by McPherson of Donisthorpe then passing to John Burton at Alfreton
