Dennis ET E1 Broadway Barnsley

A visit to Doncaster Model Railway Show in 1988, saw an emergency photo stop to this location which is apparently E1 Broadway in Barnsley.
I just had to photograph this as it reminded me of Cleveland's big ET's.

This is a real Et ! i hope she's around for preservation, i'd love to see this on the road .

It appears to be still around (till 2000 at least), there's a picture of it on a rally field elsewhere on this site.

One of two, Sheffield Central had one too. True ET's, classics.

see picture #18208. Only crew door on nearside not offside I notice.

It certainly offered lots of headroom! Almost looks like an open top double-decker bus - apart of course for the quartet of giant blue beacons....

Does anyone know where did the crew sit? Were there tip-up seats along the aisle? Or was it just a two seater?

Added by Rob Johnson on 15 December 2017.
It was quite common for ET's of this era to have a single rear crew cab door. Many were also used as Incident Command Units with the rear crew cab acting as the command centre. The lack of a door gave additional wall space for white boards or nominal roll board storage.

Rob, I seem to recall that there were rear facing bench seats on the rear crew cab.
