Yorkshire Woollen District 225, FHD129, an AEC Reliance 2MU3RV with Park Royal B43F body, new in 1960 as 866.
Renumbered 225 in 1967, then again to 115 in 1971, it was withdrawn in 1972 and sold to North's, the dealer, in 1973 where it apparently attracted no further buyer other than the scrapman.
Seen descending Dewsbury Road, Elland whilst working the short but arduous local 42 service from Elland to Upper Edge and back. Nowadays the A629 Elland By-pass (Calderdale Way) crosses Dewsbury Road approximately where the car can be seen climbing half way up, some of the terrace houses having to be demolished to make way for it. My aunt and uncle lived in one of those and thought they were settled there for the rest of their lives until the letter arrived in the post.
