Three assorted Leyland PD2's at the premises of Whippet, Hilton, from left to right, RRR96 is a PD2/20 with Metro Cammell Orion L27/28R body, new to East Midland (D96) in 1955, acquired in 1966 and sold to a local breaker in 1971, FRC956 is a PD2/12 with Leyland H32/26RD body, new to Trent (1256) in 1954 and KCH106 is a PD2/12 with Metro Cammell Orion H33/26RD body, new to Trent (1006) in 1957.
FRC 956 was one of the final batch of Leyland-built bodies. The windscreen and front dash panel appear to be different to the standard version. KCH 106 seems to have been a much travelled vehicle, having also operated for Cunningham, Paisley at some time - not sure whether it was before or after Whippet. An ex-LT RLH can just be seen lurking behind.
