On Bank Holiday Monday, August 29, I visited the Vintage Car and Bus Rally held at Seaburn Recreation Park, organised by the North East Bus Preservation Society.
Sunderland Corporation Transport Leyland Panther Bus of 1966 is celebrating its 5oth anniversary. I had my photograph taken in front of this great green and cream bus. It operated with a token machine, which issued a ticket and had centre doors made by Strachans in Hampshire.
It was a great day with sunny weather and loads of people attending. Happy birthday to the Panther bus.
