A pair of curious vehicles fitted with Alexander bodywork, 71 was a very rare performer on services within the City Boundary, it's chassis was designated B55/20 ; it's normal duties were between Derby and Burton on Trent. During one of it's rare appearances on local work 71 swings past 100 in The Cornmarket on 13th August 1987. The difference between the vehicle heights is quite apparent.
