1913

1-4**Railless Electric TractionMilnes VossB28R

Nos. 1-4 rebodied by Lockwood and Clarkson 1915-17, reseated to B27R in 1920. Nos 2 and 3 had fleet numbers transposed sometime during this period.
Nos. 1 and 3 received new chassis in 1923, with new bodies probably by Short Brothers in 1924 (it has also been suggested that either 1 or 3 was rebodied by Roe at the same time as No. 6). Nos. 2 and 4 were similarly rebuilt in 1924.
The original chassis were built by David Brown of Huddersfield and the replacement chassis (probably) by Thornycroft.
** In 1921 registration for trolleybuses became compulsory and registration numbers TB 8570-72 were issued to three of the four vehicles. Which vehicles received which registrations is unclear (possibly one was out of service at this time) although TB8572  has been quoted as the registration of No. 4.
Withdrawn (?).

1915
