New to Yorkshire Woollen in 1962 is this Metro-Cammell bodied Leyand Titan PD3 with St. Helen style front end bonnet. Yorkshire Woollen was part of the British Electric Traction (B.E.T) group, whose purchases were mainly Leyland vehicles. Like neighbour West Riding, Woollen passed to the NBC in 1969.
This Leyland Titan was a delight to see at Dewsbury, a reminder of the proper bus operators vehicle.
So I would just love to know how this well looked after bus went from what you can see above to this........

It's certainly different. Now I don't know if she is static there of if she drives to and from her pitch everyday. Obviously a formal identification is impossible from this pic, but Andrew remembers the important things, and this pic leaves little in doubt.

All the sheen and life has gone from the paintwork and she almost looks mournful there. I'd love to know who previously owned her 2 years ago and let her go to Poland. At least she is still in one piece I guess. Many thanks to Andrew for sending the pics - she'd look quite good on the 146 now I come to think about it - Nicky can be your clippie!
