Details: Another of London Country's long Leyland Nationals to see further use as a service vehicle was LNB57. New as a Green Line coach (numbered LNC57) in 1973, it was soon demoted to more suitable bus work and renumbered LNB57. By 1980, many of the batch were stored pending overhaul, with only a few returning to bus work. LNB57 was not one of these and in 1981 it was moved to the central works at Crawley for conversion into a uniform issue unit. In this role, for which it was repainted into this green and yellow livery, it replaced AEC Regent 581J. The latter vehicle, converted from low-bridge bus RLH44, was sold for preservation, while LNB57 seems to have only been used until 1986 and is presumed to have been scrapped. It was photographed at Leatherhead Garage in June 1986, when it carried no lettering.
