Two Brighton Buses at Old Steine
Two Brighton Buses at Old Steine
Taken in May 1971, this photo shows Leyland Atlantean 85 (TUF 85J) about to leave the Old Steine terminus near the seafront, on route 45 to South Woodingdean via Race Hill. It has Willowbrook 73-seater bodywork in the new blue and white livery of Brighton Corporation Transport. Behind that vehicle to the left of the photo is a Leyland Titan PD2 with Weymann 64-seater bodywork dating from 1961 in the former red and cream livery on route 53 to Hollingdean Estate via Elm Grove. Sixteen of those vehicles were bought at that time to replace the trolleybuses in Brighton, the last day of operation being Friday 30th June 1961. Brighton Corporation Transport was acquired by the Brighton & Hove Bus Company in May 1997, and that bus operator now operates most of the services in the locality.
