Imagine turning into work on a morning like this. Its enough to make you want to turn round and return straight back home! But bus drivers are a resilient bunch and wheels must keep turning. One bus has managed to leave the depot, climb the incline out of Low Fold Garage at Horsforth and reach the main A65 (New Road Side) to make its way to the pick-up point for one of the many workers contracts or school services that Independent/Edwards Coachways did.

21. AAX27
The West Monmouthshire Omnibus Board was famous for the service up Aberbargoed Hill which ascended at around 1 in 4 after a low bridge under the railway. Two Leyland Bull lorry chassis were bodied as buses for the service, one of which was rescued after withdrawal, but by the time this picture was taken existed only as a chassis. Parked outside at Winkleigh in this 1978 view, the chassis of AAX27 may well have been lost by now.

24. AAX27
A detail of the rear axle of West Mon Leyland Alpine Beaver 13, AAX27. This shows what I believed to be a ratchet and pawl mechanism, but on looking at it again I'm not sure. Whatever we are seeing inside the tyres is not the normal edge of a brake drum. However, I do seem to recall someone at West Mon saying they still had the sprag brake mechanism off the PD2 (also 13) and it fastened to the brake drums.

Paul Harrison's personal favourite - mainly because he's owned it since 1988! AVX975G was new to ENOC as coach 2614 in August 1968. One of only 5 FLFs to get a "G" registration, the last Lodekka chassis numerically, ENOC's last new half-cab bus, and one of only 5 31ft, semi automatic Coaches were the attributes that led him to rescue AVX from Ensign (dealer) as it was due to be exported to Australia. AVX was converted to bus specification in 1975, and passed in 1982 to an Eastern National Preservation Group member who had sold it on to Ensign by 1985, where it lay until the successful rescue bid in 1988.
