7434CZ, Ulster Transport Authority R434, a 1962 Leyland Tiger Cub PSUC1/12 with UTA DP41F body, new in 1962.
One of a batch of 60 buses of the type, these had bodies of the same style as those fitted a few years earlier to a batch of Albion Aberdonians. The Albion bodies had Alexander frames, finioshed by UTA, but I don't know whether this batch of Tiger Cubs was similar, or had entirely UTA-built bodies. Certainly the Alexander resemblance remained. This particular vehicle is seen here "over the border", in Donegal Town, County Donegal, apparently on a Private Hire. It passed to Ulsterbus in April 1967 (numbered 434) with the rest of the UTA fleet; was sold to Lough Swilly (no. 192) in June 1980 and was withdrawn and scrapped by them in 1983.
