How did you get to the Ground? Maybe the ‘No 5’ Bus, once a familiar sight on Matchdays?

How many supporters over the years caught the ‘No 5’ bus on a MatchDay? I seem to recall it ran a circular route from the corner of Hart Street/Norwood Road, down Sussex Road, Chapel Street, Lord Street, Eastbank Street, Scarisbrick New Road and then on to Haig Avenue. The photo of the Leyland Panther bus is from 1968, taken at the junction on Hart Street by ‘Steve Newman Car Sales’, back then a petrol station.
