Samuel Morgan of Armthorpe trading as ‘Blue Line’ and R. Store of Stainforth, trading as ‘Reliance’ were two independents operating out to the east side of Doncaster and became closely associated in 1949, they operated very similar vehicles in the same livery on joint routes.
Both were ardent Guy users, and both at one time had every Mark of Arab in service simultaneously – from Mk. I to Mk. V. Samuel Morgan also had an Arab UF, a LUF and a Warrior for good measure.
Sadly, like most of the other classic Doncaster independents, they eventually capitulated to the South Yorkshire P.T.E.
