Standerwick 940S (FCK 940F) in Rochdale - Feb 1973

Standerwick 940S (FCK 940F) in Rochdale - Feb 1973
February 1973 – I think this was the first day we ever saw a National white liveried Standerwick coach working on the X79 service. 940S (FCK 940F) was seen at the Yelloway Coach Station, Weir Street, Rochdale at 1345 when working the 1315 Oldham-Blackpool X79 service. When the all white National Bus Company coach livery was introduced the large fleetname was simply ‘NATIONAL’ becoming ‘NATIONAL EXPRESS’ later. Also, the company name of the NBC subsidiary which owned the vehicle was carried over the front wheel underlined by a coloured band - there were no outside contractors to NBC at that time and all were NBC company businesses.
