Piccadilly Bus Station, Manchester
Piccadilly Bus Station, Manchester
Taken in April 1969, this photo shows 4726 (DNF 726C) a red Daimler Fleetline with Metro-Cammell 76-seater bodywork about to leave Piccadilly Bus Station on Route 101 to Greenbrow Road, Wythenshawe. This vehicle is operated by Manchester Corporation Transport and a board at the front says it is "Conductor Operated", although the two black and yellow symbols above the windscreen indicate that the bus has been converted for one-man operation. To the left of the photo is 90 (MJA 890G) a red and cream Leyland Titan with East Lancs 70-seater bodywork operated by Stockport Corporation Transport. It is on route 92 to Hazel Grove via Stockport. Both routes are now operated by Stagecoach Manchester, the 101 now working to Wythenshawe Bus Station, whilst the 92 is now route 192. The Manchester Metrolink light rapid transit system now works through where these vehicles are located.
