EO3463 was ex-Barrow Corporation No.1, new in 1925.
Fleet numbers of these vehicles are unclear. No. 22 (FA3317) has been established by photographic evidence. It would seem logical that FA3316-3318 would be numbered in sequence, but EO3463 has also been quoted as No. 23. Is it possible one carried an 'A' suffix?
Withdrawn 1930 (EO3463), 1936 (21-22, FA3318).
