Surviving Sheffield (SJOC/STD) and SYPTE buses

Recommended Posts

In preparedness' for the South Yorkshire Transport Trust Open Day on Sunday I have been updating my lists of surviving buses with a local connection. Having now found away to convert and save these in a compatible format for this forum I can now make these available.   The first can be found below and lists the survivors that were once in the fleets of Sheffield Transport Department / Joint Omnibus Committee,56457614_SurvivingSYPTEbuses001.thumb.jpg.7c145b44045217bb9134071a481ac7df.jpg

The bus that was to me the best I ever drove is listed there, but it is a shame she was cut down. 475 is a lovely vehicle, just my kind of bus, she could knock nine bells out of the modern front loaders.. All the Leyland's  were powerful but with the engine she had in the last years before being retired she could lick anything.

A few additions to the list:-

Cut down from double deckers and still knocking around

M3 OWJ 353A in Blackpool area

M4 OWJ 354A in Blackpool area

M16 OWJ 782A in South Yorkshire Transport Trust (SYTT) Rotherham

And subtract from the list 

61 C61 LHL Ford Transit / Carlyle - recently scrapped.

Others in existence used by STD/SYT but not new to either:-

M1 DUG 167C ex-Blueline now SYTT

M18 BWW 654B ex- T. Severn & Sons in Doncaster now in Keighley bus museum

Nigel's post prompts me to add the list of survivors from Doncaster and Rotherham Corporations and the independents from these areas.  634104042_SurvivingSYPTEbuses003.thumb.jpg.d83a6ba3b67ec091d3c09c3c3bbf7821.jpg621771428_SurvivingSYPTEbuses004.thumb.jpg.4208c407727f40a02d703d45f7215855.jpg

...just an update on 287 - SWB 287L - formally converted to open-top during its SYT/ Mainline days - now superbly restored and with its roof back on , and finished in Sheffield Transport livery as it was when new !
