Second shot of West Mon 1, HWO590, a Foden PVSC6 new in 1948 with a heavily rebuilt Dodson B32D body from WO 4625, a Leyland Lion. It was rebodied in 1953 with a Willowbrook B31F body. It was fitted with sprag gear to prevent run back on the Bargoed Hill route which had a section of 1 in 4.
It is seen here climbing the hill being overtaken by an intrepid Ford Anglia driver.
