32. VWO223
Following comments on another picture about the unusual shape of the offside roof corner on a Red and White MW, this picture of two such vehicles may explain the appearance.

The shape of the roof around the air intake does look more pronounced on the older vehicle.

34. 15AAX
Chris Stewart managed to get three FL6Gs in his view, but checking my original slide, I think there may be another one lurking behind L1560, 15AAX, with Red and White at Pontypridd. I have no idea how to pronounce the destination showing!

Red & White bought twenty-one of the Bristol RESL6Ls in 1967. They were some of the few RESLs built with this style of body. The whole batch was initially allocated to Aberdare where they replaced the Lydney/BBW-bodied Royal Tigers and became a feature of bus operation in the area. They were powerful, fast and musical to boot - I loved them.

56. SAX1G
This caught me by surprise and I didn't know at the time what it was working. I assumed it was perhaps a feeder service to the X84 Aberdare to Birmingham service. However, as I was to find out to my delight the following day when I was returning home via Birmingham, it was working all the way and was treated to a glorious ride in a very comfortable and musical coach.
