Preserved Atlantean - POPS 766 EVT.

Having just scanned this shot from a circa twenty five year old slide, It struck me that even some shots of preserved buses are beginning to acquire a 'period' feel.

Ex PMT Leyland Atlantean PDR1 / Wemann, 766 EVT was built in 1959 and served the company faithfully into the 1980s. It seems almost inconceivable that the bus has now been in preservation for nearly the same length of time again. It is seen here on home ground at PMT's erstwhile Hanley Garage in Clough Street having just been re-painted in original colours for it's 'new' life.
