Brief History

754 was the last bus delivered to Sheffield Transport Department before that undertaking became part of South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive in 1974. It has the reliable and well-respected Gardner 6LXB engine, driving through a fluid flywheel and 4-speed semi-automatic gearbox.

It was fitted from new with a Videmat ticket machine. The passenger placed the exact fare into the machine and received a photo of the coins as proof of the fare paid and boarding point. The Videmat system was abandoned in Sheffield in December 1984.

754 had a fairly short service life of only 11 years, being withdrawn around the same time as Videmat. It was immediately bought for preservation and  for a number of years was a regular performer on the Museum's Isle of Axholme tour. It is currently awaiting work on the chassis. 

The vehicle is stored at the Museum whilst awaiting repairs, but can be viewed if accompanied by a member of staff.
