25. 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.

27. 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!

164HAX, a Bristol FS6B from 1963, L263 in the Red and White fleet at Newport Bus Station, almost all of the bus in the pre-NBC livery, but is that a grey rear wheel spoiling the effect?

37. LAX108E
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. By the date of this photo most of them had been withdrawn and RS3667, LAX108E, was one of the few survivors. It was not resting in its old age and is seen here on the marathon Cardiff to Swansea service that ran via Aberdare. When new it was numbered RS867.

45. 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. RD1339, SAX1G, was a Bristol RELH6L with ECW C47F body that was new as Red & White RC1.69.

A further two, RC371J and RC471J were delivered to the Jones, Aberbeeg fleet. Unusually they were fitted with top-sliding windows and carried no style designation but were otherwise to the Panorama Elite II design.
