240/02 Premier Travel Services BVO 3C in Manchester - August 1974
Saturday x August 1973 - Premier Travel Services 240 (BVO 3C), a Harrington Grenadier bodied AEC Reliance purchased secondhand from Barton Transport, pulls out of the Yelloway departure bay of Chorlton Street coach station in Manchester heading south on the joint Yelloway/Premier Travel North West-East Midlands-East Anglia service. Summer Saturday mornings always brought forward a very fine array of Premier Travel coaches, particularly at Manchester where the two different services met (the 77 from Blackburn and the 78 from Blackpool) - the latter swollen by the passenger numbers from the famous coastal resort along with the many travellers between Bolton and Leicester). The Saturday southbound services were covered by Premier Travel who worked the northbound service Friday/southbound Saturday and the northbound service Sunday/southbound Monday. This coach had worked a northbound duplicate to Rochdale the previous day.
