History of SYPTE 11 (AAK111T)

AAK111T is a Leyland National with B44F bodywork. It was delivered new to the SYPTE in February 1979. It was delivered in NBC green livery with SYPTE fleet names applied.

No. 11 is certainly the vehicle in the collection that has carried the most liveries. Its carried SYPTE brown and cream, SYT, Sheafline, and Mainline to name a few. It has also changed hands almost as many times in preservation. It is a very important vehicle locally, as it is the only vehicle that can be correctly painted in a number of lost operator liveries and is the only surviving Mk1 Leyland National that was delivered new to the SYPTE.

To be fair the vehicle is in a bit of a state, but all the parts to restore it are there. Hopefully one day 11 can join the other resident Nationals and be a runner again.
