[index] and vehicle identity year, make and model
[1] AHN 451B 1964 Daimler CCG5 with Roe 61-seat highbridge double-deck body with open rear platform.
Aycliffe and District Bus Preservation Society of Newton Aycliffe
New to Darlington Corporation Transport and in service from 1964 until 1980. This vehicle is typical of a small number of vehicles produced by Daimler after the arranged marriage of Guy and Daimler under the Jaguar umbrella: it has a Guy drive-line with Gardner 5LW engine and constant mesh gearbox. The Corporation's preference for a small (7 litre) 5-cylinder engine was very unusual by that late date. The bus was purchased by ADBPS in 1980.
[2] FBR 53D 1966 Leyland Panther PSUR1/1R with Strachan 47-seat front entrance single-deck saloon body.
North-East Bus Preservation Trust of Sunderland
The vehicle had a full service life with Sunderland Coporation before acquisition for preservqtion by Ray Thornton. It is now in the North East Bus Preservation Trust collection.

Aycliffe and District Bus Preservation Society is registered charity number 1 158 142. Its VAT registration number is 809 3809 11.
