Moquette was only used on coaches and DP vehicles until the late seventies when operators started putting it on regular buses. Seems the trend is now moving firmly towards eleather.

Not quite. Ribble always used really plush moquette on their buses as did quite a few other BET operators. In the winter it was very much appreciated. Leather was more durable but considered to be unhygienic and expensive. Personally, I prefer moquette.
