History of Yorkshire Terrier 2471 (W471MKU)
2471 is a DAF SB220 with an East Lancs Myllennium body. Delivered new in 2000 to Yorkshire Terrier. 2471 passed to Stagecoach in December 2005 when the Traction group was taken over and was renumbered as 26101 in the national fleet number scheme.
After a few more years service with Stagecoach 2471 was withdrawn and passed to Blackpool Transport for use as a driver trainer. A role it has been undertaking until its recent withdrawal. Purchased for preservation in early May 2018 2471 arrived back in South Yorkshire a couple of weeks later.
A small repair on the fuel tank was been carried out upon arrival in Rotherham. 2471 is now stored away from our main Riverside premises but is very much part of the collection at SYTT. You should see 2471 out at a rally very soon in it's as withdrawn condition.
