Leyland Nationals supplied new to NWOS and its predecessors

NWO461R

Red & White ND1676 (NWO461R) was the last of R&W's 1976 NDs, indeed their last ND, as no more dual purpose Nationals were bought after 1976. Here, it is in Cardiff Bus Station, on a short working of service 73 to Lydney. 'Short' is a relative term, the journey to Lydney was around two hours, so the use of an ND would have been reasonable, and the 73 had been a single deck service for some years previously.
