Berresfords JPA179K a 1972 AEC Reliance 6U2R/Park Royal DP45F originally Green Line RP79.
Following the deregulation of express services in 1980 Berresfords started a Manchester-Derby service in competition with the long-established North Western service, latterly operated by Crosville/Trent. Loadings were usually minimal and breakdowns seemingly frequent and this Reliance has expired in Stockport, later a Bedford YRQ coach appeared as a substitute having presumably been sent all the way from Cheddleton, so a long wait for the passengers if there were any.
