Manchester's buses worked hard for their living, most then went for scrap and very few went on to other use. 436 was one and became a holiday chalet many miles from the city in a small village near Craven Arms in Shropshire. Rescued for preservation, it is now in the Museum for restoration. And there's more, for 436 is the first Crossley Mancunian, has one of the first all-Crossley steel-framed bodies and is the only surviving pre-war Manchester double-decker. This is 436's story.
Softback, 32 pages
