Bedwas and Machen's last purchases comprised a huge batch of two buses (by this time 28% of the fleet) which were Leyland Leopards with East Lancs bodies - what was to become the standard Rhymney Valley bus. Seen here at the Cardiff Rally in June 1987 is what was originally B & M 10, OAX74M, but was now Inter Valley Link 94.
Rhymney Valley District Council only existed as a bus operator for some twelve years as a stand-alone company had to be formed on deregulation in 1986. This company was Inter Valley Link which retained the base colours of the Rhymney Valley livery with a more complex application.
