In the 1960s a large proportion of Wallace Arnold passengers for European holidays were conveyed from Leeds to Southend Airport for the Channel crossing. This was a busy operation often involving six or seven coaches in a day. Breakdowns were commendably rare but on one occasion a WA vehicle failed in Southend and Eastern National PL344, 569UVX, was loaned to save the day. This fine coach is shown leaving Leeds with more tourists the following morning at the start of its "repatriation" journey.

On the second afternoon of the 2015 Royal Blue run and with the help from First group who still had to run service buses of 6 per hour, the organisers arranged for coaches to come down to St Ives bus station in small groups for pictures - not the easiest of things to do with crowds etc but here is one of my shots. The aim was where possible to recreate pictures of the coach and St Ives Bay / harbour. 56GUO is a Bristol MW6G dating from 1961 with a ECW C39F body. In 2010 it became part of the Roger Burdett collection but is on long term loan to his close friend and best man, Graham Clifford. The vehicle was also driven during the weekend by Steve Morris of Quantock heritage and for this trip into St. Ives it was driven by Alex Lawson from WYRCC preservation group. The vehicle is based near Brighton.
