The Return of the Charabanc W 671 - Joseph Tomlinson & Sons Ltd. Sheffield

Many years ago I posted an article to the site about the tragedy that occurred at Moscar near Sheffield on 25th August 1907

But last week a descendent of Joseph Tomlinson the owner of the charabanc involved in the accident. contacted me and kindly forwarded this photograph. 

It shows the charabanc reg no W671 on the road again - we are pretty positive that this was taken after the accident as the front mudguards are missing, and the radiator grill looks as though it has been replaced. There is no date or location given but it looks as though it is a day excursion from Sheffield into the Peak District that was during the summer months.

I wonder if any of the passengers knew of W671's past?
