OAG 760L was new to Duff of Ardrossan, one of the members of the A1 co-operative, as bus man stated earlier. I can recall her in the dark blue and white, but not in the later blue, yellow and white livery.

A few more shots of more recent (in relative terms) Andrews buses:

One of the many ex West midlands MCW fleetlines is "Little John" (NOC476R)

A little less usual for Andrews was ex Cleveland Transit's Northern Counties bodied Fleetline "Nick Broughton" (LDC81P)

And not every Andrews bus was a Fleetline. "Tinkerbell" (DET476V) was an ex Yorkshire Traction Leyland National

Am I right in thinking that when Andrews started operating services in Sheffield they used some of the AEC Regents as wall as the older Fleetlines?

I'm sure there were three ex cleveland ones. "Nick Broughton" " Henry Bessemer" and "Captian PJ Sillito"

here is LDC 81P Nick Broughton in Cleveland transit and Andrews livery
