196/01 Premier Travel Services LJE 992G in Rochdale - 19 Jun 1970
Saturday 19 June 1970 - Premier Travel Services 196 (LJE 992G) seen rumbling along the setts of Milton Street in Rochdale towards the rear entrance of the Yelloway coach station and garage. It was one of a pair (with LJE 991G) of Alexander ‘Y’ type bodied AEC Reliances built to the newly authorised length of 12 metres allowed from 1969 and was working the joint Yelloway/Premier Travel service 77 from Blackburn to Clacton-on-Sea. The destination blind layout was unique to Premier in that it showed the service number in red - in this case the two service numbers employed on the North West to East Anglia services - 77 from Blackburn and 78 from Blackpool and also two white on black blinds for the destination and intermediate points.
