44 on its travels

Fylde 44 has been on its travels since it was retired by Irlam Royalettes Morris dancers in June 2015. It was initially stored in a yard in Bolton, soon moving to First Manchester's Bolton depot, pending rectification of a blown head. In 2017 it was moved to Keighley Bus Museum on tow as it wasn't felt appropriate to drive it.

It was then moved to a yard in Bingley for further storage and has since moved onto Autotec where a donor engine is expected to be fitted and 44 will return to use once more, now in the capable hands of Mark Whitehead.
