BUF273C, a once proud Southdown Queen Mary that by 1987 was in the hands of travellers and looking well past its best. I knew this bus very well from its Southdown days, being a Brighton car and was sad to learn it was scrapped not too long after this shot, but having seen its true condition it was probably a merciful release.

There was a discussion last year on this site about Southdown PD3 HCD356E so here is a very recent picture. I always think Queen Marys look sad and this one seems to be crying green tears. However it will I'm sure be fully restored as it has joined several such vehicles owned by one person.

Southdown 368, HCD368E, a 1967 built Leyland PD3/4 with Northern Counties FH39/30F bodywork seen when brand new. This batch of 'panoramics' were quickly nicknamed 'greenhouses' as the upper deck became very hot in plesant sunny weather.

Bedwas and Machen's final double-decker was their first that was thirty-feet long, one reason for which may have been the service reorganisations which saw the buses of the little fleet (never bigger than seven) participating in the thirty mile long service from Newport to Rhymney Bridge along with Gelligaer UDC, Western Welsh and Red and White. 6, PAX466F, was even more unusual as it was a lowbridge bus, a Massey-bodied PD3 new in 1967 and the last bus built to this configuration.
