Heritage Buses at Totally Transport

During the Totally Transport event on 22nd June, the Lancastrian Transport Trust operated a free heritage bus service. The buses used throughout the day were 1946 Lytham Leyland PD1 No19, 1968 Blackpool Leyland PD3 No 529 and 1964 Lytham Leyand PD2 No 70. The free bus service started from the northern end of the Totally Transport event, opposite The Star pub, and departed approximately every 15 minutes or on demand, running a circular route past the airport and back. Routemaster RML887 was also in use on the Seafront 12 promenade service operated by Oakwood Travel. Another Blackpool Leyland PD3, No 512, was seen about during the day, and was driven to Fleetwood Ferry during the afternoon so that it could be photographed alongside Pantograph Car 167 when it operated the tour through to Fleetwood.
