Once Southampton found something they liked they normally bought in bulk. It had done so with the Guy Arabs and eventually did so with the East Lancs-bodied Atlanteans.

Deliveries started in 1968 with PDR1/1s and, according to my calculations, totalled 175* by the time the last AN68C/1R was delivered in 1982

Southampton 146 (WOW 536J) is seen at Town Quay awaiting it's next trip to Bassett Green on service 13.

*It would have been 176 but number 123, from the batch previous to this one, was destroyed in a fire at East Lancs' factory in early 1970. The chassis was rescued and sold to Australia, where it received a single deck body.
