Extra Information Bought from Southdown for 68 each in June 1961 to cover a vehicle shortage due to a fire at Weymann's premises. It still fetched 53 when sold a year later. It later passed to Campbell (Dlr.), Brighton in August 1962 then to Willett (Dlr.). It was rescued and transferred to the West of England Transport Collection in August 1988. Sold to T Blackman, Halifax, in 2004 to supply parts for the restoration of 18 as Southdown 204. She was finally scrapped in September 2005 after the donation was complete.
