Venture was a Consett based company serving north County Durham with routes running into Newcastle upon
Tyne. It used to be the largest independent running into the city. A major fleet renewal took place between 1946 and 1948 with the purchase of 60 Daimler single deck vehicles including this preserved
example on an outing to Newcastle seen in August, 2000. It sports a Daimler 8.4 litre diesel engine with fluid flywheel and 4 speed pre-selector Wilson epicyclical gearbox. It has a 35 seat Willowbrook
body. These vehicles were withdrawn in 1964. See a similar example during operational days.
