All aboard for yesteryear.

The green and cream livery of the historic SHMD Transport Board was back on the streets of Dukinfield at the weekend.

Cllr Brian Wild and his colleagues on Dukinfield District Assembly arranged for the visit of the SHMD No 76, a 1956 Daimler CVG6, to the town on Saturday.

It made a series of free Dukinfield circular trips based on the old 10/10A route.

The bus, which is kept at Keighley Bus Museum, belongs to transport enthusiast David Jones who was brought up in Dukinfield and lived on Zetland Street for many years.
