Seating Capacity: H41/33R
New: July 1966
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. 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.
In October 2017 No. 60 was sold to the Leicester Transport Heritage Trust and was moved from Wythall to Leicestershire for safe storage. Work began on the vehicle in the summer of 2019 and one of the first jobs was to replace the rotten rear platform structure with new metalwork. The upper saloon has been stripped out and refurbished and a start made on the lower saloon. Date of latest news 04/22.
