Nos. 13-15 rebuilt by UEC as open-canopy top-covered 70 or 72-seat double-deckers in 1908; may have been re-trucked with Craven trucks c.1925; one of these (probably No. 15) fitted with new English Electric body in 1920.

In 1920 seven new English Electric standard bodies were purchased and fitted to seven (numbers unknown) of Nos. 5-30, retaining the trucks and top-covers. It is possible that these and No. 15 (above) were re-numbered in the 60-68 series for a short while, but had reverted to numbers in the 5-30 series by the end of 1921.
