Line up of coaches at Rochdale - August 1972

Line up of coaches at Rochdale - August 1972
August 1972 - Yelloway worked with may different joint operators. This colourful line up of coaches was a regular sight on a Saturday morning on the Rochdale Corporation Transport parking ground before the coaches from the south returned back home. Working away from the camera are coaches of Red and White; Southdown; Royal Blue and Premier Travel. I can’t recall whose that was at the far end possibly Greenslades Tours. Baillie Street runs along the back of the coaches and Duncan Street is in the background across the photograph. This site became part of Rochdale bus station in the early 1970s. Red and White, Southdown and Royal Blue were members of the Associated Motorways consortium and their vehicles would be working the joint Yelloway/Associated Motorways services to Barry Island, Portsmouth and Bournemouth respectively.
