Yelloway PDK 461H and Ribble TRN 767 - 8 May 1972

Yelloway PDK 461H and Ribble TRN 767 - 8 May 1972
Monday 8 May 1972 – Ribble 767 (TRN 767) seen entering the Yelloway garage at Rochdale from Milton Street. The two Yelloway coaches are parked on the fuel bays with PDK 461H most prominent and on the bay used most. Nearside fuelling was the norm on Yelloway coaches. The buildings in the background were all owned by Yelloway and the small door to the left of the Ribble vehicle was at the bottom of the stairs which led to the Revenue office and the Chart Room on the first floor. The small windows on the second floor were those of the ‘Top loft’ used for the dumping of old tickets and paperwork. When this was partially cleared out it revealed some interesting publicity relics which I added to my collection. The large doors on the ground floor just visible to the right of PDK 461H were those of the Paintshop. The doors to the right of the Ribble vehicle house the Bodyshop. The doors of the ‘Paint Prep Shop’ are right behind PDK 461H. The windows just visible between the two Yelloway coaches were the Krazy Kuts supermarket building owned by the Co-op. The destination blind on PDK 461H shows ‘Rossendale’ which was usually displayed on northbound London service coaches working the ‘feeder’ route from Manchester.
