Wallace Arnold WUM 520L and Yelloway PDK 463H Aug 1973
Saturday x August 1973 - Two Plaxton Panorama Elite bodied coaches in the Yelloway bay at Chorlton Street coach station Manchester. On the left is Yelloway PDK 463H, an AEC Reliance, the ‘service motor’ on the joint Yelloway/Associated Motorways Rochdale to Ilfracombe direct service. On the right is Wallace Arnold (Devon) Limited WUM 520L, a Leyland Leopard, which was loading as a duplicate to the Yelloway 0830 Rochdale-Paignton motorway express service. This express left Rochdale one hour later than the normal daily service picking up as far as Altrincham then running non-stop (except for refreshment/toilet stops) to Exeter, Newton Abbot, Torquay and Paignton. On paper leaving Rochdale one hour later, it arrived in Devon 15 minutes earlier.
