Awaiting their fate
A fine selection of former corporation buses await collection by Barnsleys bus breaking teams at the rear of the former Lancashire United depot at Hindley, or Platt Bridge as it was more commonly known. Closest to the camera is a former Wigan Titan PD2 whose Leyland badge from atop the radiator has already been removed, probably by a souvenier hunter. A former Salford Atlantean has its bonnet lifted, no doubt a fitter has been in there removing parts to keep the serviceable fleet on the road as the 0.680 engine was standard in the Atlanteans and Leopards. Next to that is a former Bolton Atlantean and two former Wigan Panthers that can just be glimpsed in the background.
