1949 Bristol L5G's ex Lincolnshire RCC FFW830 and ex United AS LHN823, both with ECW B35R bodies.
Seen in the car park at the Hawes Countryside Museum FFW830 has worked the Tuesday only, 127 Ripon to Hawes and Garsdale service and would continue its journey to Garsdale.
Fortunately for me, LHN823 was operating as a duplicate, so when the Wensleydale Railway Leeming Bar to Redmire service I travelled on ran an hour late, it was possible to hold the ex United Bristol at Redmire station to make the advertised connection.
Not long after I took this shot Cumbria Classic Coaches ex Bamber Bridge MS 1955 East Lancs lowbridge bodied AEC Regent III UTC672 arrived on service 569 from Kirkby Stephen.
Unfortunately, due to car park congestion I couldn't get a shot of all three buses together, but this scene is repeated every Tuesday until the end of October, although I wouldn't imagine the 127 service will be duplicated once the main holiday season is over.
