Blackpool PD3 on Zoo Bus

Former Blackpool Corporation 1968 Leyland Titan PD3 No 529 awaiting passengers in Adelaide Street West
The new service 21 bus route to Blackpool Zoo is fast becoming a very interesting stage carriage route on which to be able to sample a ride on a variety of preserved heritage buses. After being operated by a London AEC Routemaster and Ribble Bristol RE, this week has seen former Blackpool Corporation 1968 Leyland Titan PD3 No 529 in use on the service. 529 is part of the collection of vehicles owned by the Lancastrian Transport Trust, and looked completely at home operating on its old stamping ground again.
