#TBT Throw Back Thursday ~ Another Visitor

The subject of this week's Throw Back Thursday returns to the old Eastern Counties Wellington Road Bus Station and its layover area on St Peter's Road in Great Yarmouth.

Today's offering is a photo of an Eastern National Leyland Tiger and an Eastern Counties Leyland Leopard. The former, HHJ373Y, was delivered new to Eastern National as their 1112 in March 1983. During its time in Essex it received National white and Thamesway branding/liveries and later moved on to First Western National as their 2224.

The latter is PWW706R which was new to West Riding in May 1976, although it was intended to be registered as NWR505P. It was a dual purpose vehicle with 49 seats which passed to Eastern Counties in 1985. It spent some time based at Great Yarmouth and made its final journey to PVS (breaker) of Carlton for scrap sometime during 1987.

Also photo bombing the scene is a Cambridge based Premier Travel coach
