Hi Ron, Beside HVN 777 and BCC 450 I'm aware that only one more Plaxton bodied QX existed and I believe that it went to West Riding. Is this true?

Hi Ronald. Many thanks for sharing this great shot. Do you know when and where it was taken please. Paul.

North Riding of Yorks bought two Plaxtons, 777 and 778. One of them was still on the run at Yarm when I visited in 1968 and had a makeshift wire mesh grille instead of the sixteen small radiator bars.

I have no idea of the details behind the photo

Hi Paul,
It looks very much like East Road Northallerton with the prison in the background?

I saw one of these Plaxtons stationed at Whitby in or around 1958. It was a daft design, because their were no front doors!!
