Former tramway operator Lancaster City Transport obtained thirteen 7'6" wide normal-height Crossley double deckers in three batches during 1947-8. The first batch 444-7 (HTB 444-7) differed by having the drooping window line around the front upper deck.
When new, these had Brockhouse-Salerni turbo-transmission recognisable by a header tank on the front bulkhead, but they were converted to constant mesh in 1954-5 and lasted until 1963. The later batches 569-72 (HTF 569‑72) and 961-5 (JTD 961-5) were like our model – eight similar examples were diverted to Sheffield. The last (961) survived into 1969. An early 1960s livery change affecting all of Lancaster’s buses extended the ruby down over the vents to meet the lower deck windows.
