971J Tree Punning Equipment
Converted from STL 1470

London Transport Country Buses tree pruning equipment vehicle 971J. CXX 457. This was converted from  front entrance STL 1470 by removing part of the upper deck. These vehicles gave an invaluable service keeping the highways and byways open for double deck buses. Most of these old routes could no longer accommodate double deck buses. Many of them haven't seen a bus of any sort for years.
