West Riding A.C. 269, GHD416G, a Leyland Leopard PSU3A/4RT with Alexander Y-Type C45F body.
New to Yorkshire Woollen District in April 1969 as 416 it passed with the rest of the YWD coach fleet to Hebble M.S. in June 1970 retaining the same number. Hebble relinquished its stage services to YWD and Halifax J.O.C after March 1971 but continued with its coaching activities, operating from the YWD garage at Frost Hill, Liversedge.
From the August the X12 Bradford-Manchester and White Rose Expressway services were transferred to West Riding A.C., whilst still operating from Frost Hill and using YWD (mostly ex-Hebble) drivers, and this batch of five Leopards was repainted in WRAC cream and green livery, this one being renumbered 97, than again to 269 three months later.
Withdrawn in October 1980 it passed shortly after to Wombwell Diesels for scrap.
