In 1969 Yorkshire Traction received a quartet of Willowbrook bodied Leyland Atlanteans that were part of an order for Devon General. They were delivered in Devon General livery and placed in service in that condition by Yorkshire Traction. 750, RHE450G, leaves Leeds on the long distance Wakefield - Barnsley- Sheffield service some months after entering service.
The green single decker that very nearly ruined the shot is a Park Royal bodied AEC Swift of Leeds City Transport that was new the same year.
