A British Leyland Class 141004 is one of 20 built, mainly from bus parts, in 1984. The twin axle coach were an uncomfortable ride in my experience. After modification by Hunslet-Barclay in 1988-89 they were renumbered from 141001-141020 to 141101-141121. The units operated mostly out of Leeds, being based in West Yorkshire. Many were later sold to Iran and four remained in preservation.

Nearby is Class 08590 and a General Utilities Van. The unit is standing in the same position as the one in this shot by Dr Neil Clifton, although on the opposite side of the platform. LinkExternal link I chose to use a telephoto lens and shoot from some distance. Since this shot, Leeds has received overhead electrification.
