New to Atkinson, Morebattle, in December 1971, MKS566K was a Bedford YRQ with a Caetano Porto bus-grant style C45F body. Although it was still with Atkinson in 1978, he had ceased operation by the time of the photograph, so it was obviously photographed with a subsequent unknown operator.
This would appear to be a unique coach, being the only one which I have recorded as having a 'Porto' body. The P.S.V. Circle Caetano list (B1600 January 2005) quotes it as being a Cascais body and notes that the Porto name was introduced for the 1995 and 1996 seasons when it was used for some bodies of a completely different design on Dennis Javelin chassis.
