Ron, I remember going through the illuminations on one just like this. The folks in Crawford Avenue, Aspull arranged it for us kids, I would be about 5 years old 1952, great memory of exited kids wide eyed as we went through the lights. Thanks for posting and I'll bet Ray Smyth as something to say about these pics, over to you Ray.

This coach is JP7839, I guess the year it was built was 1950 as Wigan Corporation bought 30 Leyland PD2 double decker buses that year, JP8300-8329.
