Omnibus edition 2 of more than 1

Built in 1955, an excellent example of the all Leyland product that was a familiar site in most towns and cities during the '50s and '60s. FRC 956 was in fact the last Leyland bodied bus built before bus production was reduced to chassis only.

Bill Phillips: They were and we all used them

Superbe !
Bill Phillips: Merci bien Martine
But more than one could mean a lot. That song impressed me when I was young but now I just think it is mundane.
Bill Phillips: I thought you would be enthusing about the magnificent frames that were added for your enjoyment

I still like this song but most of the Hollies records were blatantly commercial but I confess to having a CD of their greatest hits
What a magnificent looking machine, Trent buses will have run in the area we live in I guess and is now known as Trent Barton supplying services throughout Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire.
Bill Phillips: I think Trent Buses originated in Derby and then spread to Nottingham and the surrounding area
brilliant work, Bill. especially with the red frame.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Ayush. Pleased you like the frame

A very handsome double-decker!
Bill Phillips: What a proper bus should look like
it has been well preserved Bill... you framed it nicely....petersmile
Bill Phillips: It looked splendid Peter
When did you first notice the signs of 'anorakness' Bill, there are people you can ring you know...
Bill Phillips: It was interesting that bus anoraks are very similar to Train anoraks. Nothing wrong with them that a bar of soap and a good woman couldn't cure grin

Looks to be luxurious - it has a rear door. Part of the fun of the old buses was able to run along and jump on.
Bill Phillips: We all did it at some time
