416 on the 1

416 at Fleetwood Freeport (Tony Caddick)
 The sight of an orange and yellow liveried ECW bodied Leyland Olympian on route 1 was far from rare 12 months ago, but since the change to mainly single deck operation appearances are now few and far between. Today 416 was reported on the 1215 from Starr Gate to Freeport at Cleveleys and was still in use at 2200 with just the 2300 Fleetwood to Depot working left. The seven ex Blackburn Olympians were rarely used on the 1 with the Trent and West Yorkshire examples preferred. 413 and 414 provided the two bus workings on route 20.
