Wolverhampton 557, FJW557, a Guy Arab III with Park Royal H28/26R body, new 1950.
Seen at Offoxey Farm terminus on a twice weekly extension from the usual Tong terminus, 557 has been reversed and ready to set off back to Wolverhampton. It was empty on arrival and no passengers were waiting to board for the return journey, a typical occurance. Seen in the early autumn sunshine in 1967, 557 was soon to be replaced on these duties by the new Swifts and Roadliners. The Ford Anglia estate in the background was the Traffic Department staff car and your scribe was employed changing over the roadside timetable displays, liberally provided by WCT in the country areas.
