A Glossop P.S.
When fbb was writing about Hulleys "courageous" service from Sheffield via Glossop to Manchester, he pointed out that, earlier this year, Stagecoach had withdrawn service 236, half of the route that now only runs as far as Ashton.
Their web site also has a picture of two of the buses, looking rather splendid in a full repaint (?).

SFZ 454 was originally on this vehicle ...
... whilst LB02 YXL came from The Big Smoke.
