Historical Information

RCU 838S is the penultimate member of a batch of 40 Alexander bodied Fleetlines delivered to Tyne and Wear PTE during 1976/1977. It represents the end of 64 years continuous Daimler operation in Sunderland as well as the one of the standard vehicles delivered to Tyne and Wear PTE in the mid 1970s. Originally built to H44/27D configuration, its Alexander H44/29F bodywork with nearside staircase also represents the design pioneered by Newcastle City Transport for one person operation and subsequently adopted as standard by Tyne and Wear PTE

This vehicle passed to Busways from where it was purchased and restored to Sunderland Busways’ livery.

This vehicle spent most of its working life in Sunderland. The exceptions to this were two spells in South Shields, one immediately after deregulation and another immediately before withdrawal in June 1998.
