Bedlington & District, Ashington 281DWN was a rare bird, ex South Wales 257 (originally 37), an AEC Regent V 2D3RA with Roe B37F body new in 1963 and withdrawn sometime late in 1972.
It was one of six with special low height bodywork for use in the Llanelly dock area.
By coincidence, the bus also features on SCT61 with original operator. The location is also unusual, the bus is heading southeast 13 miles or so from the main contract services area for miners at shift times. The station building on the overbridge behind the photographer has since changed hands from British Rail to Nexus Metro.
