Like the ones that Stagecoach, Cambridge, used on Mill Road shuttles in 2019?
TCD813? The reg of a Southdown Motor Services, Northern Counties bodied, Leyland Titan PD3/4 FH39/30F (popularly dubbed 'Queen Mary') from the late 50s.
There's all 'manor' of stuff on my Twitter A/c.

Spotted in Drummer Street on Friday was A2B Optare Solo Slimline, YJ13HKW, in Stevenage Superbus branding (mainly white with blue stripe and yellow lettering). This has a Mercedes engine. It has seen previous service with Courtney.
