Turning back the clock

Well really the clock never actually started for the Leyland PD2 at Torpoint! But anyway Jamie Limb has come along with these fantastic photos of a very much 'Old and new' scene here on the Torpoint Ferry. Pictured with 32758 is of course I Leyland PD2 that has been converted as a mobile home. While talking to the new owner Jamie found out that she'd been down in Seaton for many years but was in remarkable condition. Of course she was lived in and cared for but still she has battled the weather with ease by the looks of it! She has now been bought by a preservationist believed to be in Bristol. From the photo you can tell its registration is an 'ACU-B' but the numbers in the middle you can't quite make out! So if anyone can shed some light on this story please let us know!

The vehicle appears to have been registered in South Shields when new. Perhaps a former OK travel vehicle
