JYG745, a Bristol LWL6B with ECW FC35F body. New in 3/51 to West Yorkshire as no. 667 in cream livery. Renumbered CBW 2 in 5/54 and then to EBW 2 in 2/60 at which time it was repainted into red and cream livery.
Further renumbered to SBW 2 in 4/62. Withdrawn 8/63 it passed to Norths, dealer, Sherburn in 11/63 and then to Pinnington, Crook, Co.Durham, in 6/64. In 7/65 it returned to Norths in Pinnington's livery as seen here, with what appear to be ex Durham District and ex United Auto Bristol L5Gs in the background. It moved quickly on to Rodgers of Redcar in 8/65, who continued to run it in Pinnington's livery until it was traded in again to Norths in 5/66. Although it was still in a very reasonable condition it failed to find a further buyer and in August 1966 Norths removed the engine for reuse, with the remainder of the bus going the following month to Jackson, breaker, Bradford in 9/66, who scrapped it the following month - a sad end to a fine coach.
