This 21-seater was the only example of its type to be delivered to Yorkshire Rider with coach seats.
It was part of the Gold Rider fleet, and was sold on to a firm in Devon. In December 2005 it was acquired for preservation. It has been extensively restored at the Bus Works in Blackpool. (

After some lengthy problems with the engine, this bus finally returned to the road in November 2012, when it carried passengers in service at our Open Day.
