"I have been trying to get hold of colour pictures of the 2 surviving Cravens (I also own RT1431) but pictures of either bus in service have proved difficult due to the fact they were all disposed of by 1957.    When your picture was taken she had already been in preservation for 7 years."

"The Craven RT1431 and RT1499 are the only two left out of a total of 120 delivered in 48/49 and RT1431 was the first post war RT to go into preservation when it was purchased from A1 Services in Ardrossen, Scotland in 1966. N.B. RT1431 and RT 1499 have since been acquired as a part of the expanding Ensignbus Museum fleet.
