Leyland Nationals supplied new to NWOS and its predecessors


Western Welsh N2675 (KDW338P) at Abergavenny Bus Station on a Saturday afternoon working on service 142 to Brecon. The 142 had previously been operated with Leyland Tiger Cubs, or even Albion Nimbuses, so an 11.3m National would have been unnecessarily large, and unsuited to some of the narrow roads served. Undoubtedly the big windows and low, wide entrance would have seemed better from the passengers' perspective, but I am sure that a short Bristol RE would have done the job just as well, and more economically!
