Lowestoft Corporation No 12

After being out of public view for the last 25 years, Lowestoft Corporation No 12 is now back on the road. She was unveiled this weekend at the East Anglia Transport Museum at Carlton Colville prior to attending the Norwich Bus Rally on Sunday.

No 12 has the registration PBJ2F and is a Leyland PD2 with Massey H34/28R bodywork. I understand  that almost all other PDs with the St Helen's style front grille were designated PD2A.

Above Lowestoft Corporation AEC Regent No 8 (918NRT) was brought out of the restoration bay at Carlton Colville for a special photo call alongside No 12.

This is the first time the two have been seen together since 1978. Also behind is Lowestoft Corporation AEC Regent No 21 GBJ192.

My thanks to Syd Eade for the report and photographs - the latter being copyrighted
