Daimler Fleetline Cleveland Transit H73 (LDC73P)
From 1989 a fleet upgrade caused the withdrawal of several examples of Cleveland Transit's older mid 70's stock which were replaced with new Leyland Lynxes. Several of the withdrawn vehicles turned up with other operators. Almost all of the batch that this vehicle had been from, found new homes elsewhere in the Country. Three of them from this batch which had been new in 1975 and had consisted of twenty one vehicles, turned up with a local independant in Stockton on Tees,working the same schools contracts that they had previously done when they were with Cleveland Transit. The operator Compass Royston had three of these Fleetlines, this one together with LDC70 and 86P which were formerly Cleveland Transit H70/3/86.
