United Auto BUT12, UHN348, was a Bristol LS6B with ECW C39F body new in June 1954 and ran in "Tyne-Tees-Thames" olive & cream livery. It was renumbered UT12 in November 1964 and sold to dealer North of Sherburn-in-Elmet in January 1968. Two months later it came to the operator shown here, Bedlington & District of Ashington.
Quite a smart paint job in my opinion for a coach mainly used on contracts, possibly the United cream was reused. The PSV Circle & BusView report that UHN348 had further use at contractor Derek Crouch of Birtley, but date details aren't immediately obvious from a nominal "out" entry.
