Standerwick 941S (FCK 941F) in Rochdale - Nov 1971
November 1971 - Yelloway Inspector John Howard checks the ticket of a passenger boarding Standerwick 941S (FCK 941F), a 1968 Plaxton Panorama bodied Leyland Leopard, on the ‘Blackpool stand’ at Weir Street. The coach was working the 1900 X79 service from Oldham to Blackpool which called at Rochdale at 1930. During the summer timetable Yelloway operated most, if not all, of the six or so departures on the X79/X89 services. However, during the winter months Standerwick and Yelloway provided one coach each to cover the three services each way. This resulted in a Yelloway coach spending the night in Blackpool on alternate nights and the Standerwick coach returning to the Yelloway garage at Rochdale after its arrival in Oldham. The drivers did not however stay out overnight but exchanged coaches in the Blackburn area on the last trip at around 2037-2045. So this coach would have been overnight at Rochdale last night and been in the hands of Yelloway drivers all day today until being handed over to a Standerwick driver at Blackburn on this trip.
