Bus style contrast - looking back
Rigby Road Bus Park lineup (for the camera) in the 1980s depicts three successive generations of Blackpool Transport buses as we knew them. Number 533 one of the final delivery of half cab Leyland PD3s with matching registration number. AEC Swift Number 558 with Willowbrook bodywork and again matching registration number in its Derek Hyde green and cream fleet livery - and in the centre one of the stalwart Leyland Atlantean double deck examples 318 also with matching Registration number. Representing the town's principal bus types covering nearly fifty years.
