History of Yorkshire Terrier 104 (L4YTB)
L4 YTB is a Dennis Dart with Reeves Burgess bodywork that was new in 1993 to Yorkshire Terriers Holbrook depot as its 104. It’s unknown when the actual body was built as it’s got Reeve Burges body plates fitted.
The bus stayed at this Sheffield depot until around the 2004 then it was transfered to Yorkshire Traction, both companies in the traction group. Between 2004 and 2006 the bus worked firstly at Upper Sheffield Road depot, Barnsley before transferring to Waterloo depot in Huddersfield.
When the traction group was sold to Stagecoach in 2006 the bus was never given the ‘beachball’ livery and ended up stored at the closed Shafton depot after its withdrawal due to MAN Enviros entering service at Shafton, Rawmarsh and Sheffield displacing other newer vehicles to Waterloo.
104 then past to Regal busways, Chelmsford and again kept its YTC livery. It later passed to Don's of Dunmow who used the vehicle for school contracts until 2020 when the bus past into outside preservation. In late 2020 the vehicle was re-advertised for sale and was purchased by the current owners and is now undergoing a major restoration due to server chassis rot at the SYTT.
