LUT97 returns to Manchester

LUT 97, the second vehicle to join the collection back in 1982, has been acquired for continued preservation by the Greater Manchester Transport Society and was collected today for transfer to their Manchester based Boyle Street museum.
As part of a general thinning down of the LTT collection, LUT 97 was offered to the GMTS to allow it to be transferred to a sister charity and return to its natural habitat in the Manchester area. 97, the oldest surviving Daimler Fleetline of 1962 origin, has been stored away from the public eye for many years and the transfer of ownership will allow the vehicle to be seen again by the public and hopefully return to the road once more.
LUT 97 collected for a return back to Manchester on 1st February 2014
