1966 Leyland PD3A/1 Park Royal 74R

No 60 was delivered in August 1966, one of ten that year with Park Royal bodywork of the¬†style favoured by that builder at the time. It was purchased by¬†Wythall Transport Museum (BaMMOT) in December 1980 after repainting by Leicester City Transport. No 60 became an active member of the Wythall fleet but in recent years it has become a static exhibit at the museum. The bus was an important part of BaMMOT’s working collection until the 1990s when it became apparent that the platform rise was in need of replacement and No,60 became a static exhibit at the Museum.

October 2017 and the Leyland was offered for sale to the Leicester Transport Heritage Trust and was moved from Wythall for safe storage.

The plan in 2019 is to return GRY 60D back to Leicester for restoration to begin. One of the first jobs will be to rebuild the rear platform which will be undertaking by a local Leicestershire company.
