United 556, SHN256F, a 1968 Bristol FLF6LX is shown climbing out of Whitley Bay and about to cross the North Tyneside Loop Line, between Monkseaton and Whitley Bay railway stations.
It will soon turn right heading towards Hill Heads, the Fox Hunters, Lynn Road, Billy Mill, and thence down the Coast Road to Newcastle. This photograph was taken in 1972 shortly before the bus became part of the NBC/SBG FLF/VRT bus swap of 1972/3, ending up with Western SMT. At this late date it is difficult to assess who got the best bargain, the NBC or SBG.
