      I remember back in the early/80s National Welsh done a ticket called The Rover Ticket. For 2.50, you could travel over most of South Wales. Travel on the X services, and it was surprising how far you could actually go.
      Who cared about rules when you were young?

        This is one type of bus that was used on Express Bus services, sometimes known has Limited Stop services:


        It's 1966 Bristol MW preserved in Red & White company livery. It would have been used on limited stop serves until the mid 1970s, before being replaced by newer buses or even coaches.

          I remember Black & White coaches of Cheltenham Gloucestershire which similar to national Express ran national routes. They later became part of National Express

          Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

              Looks like an AEC but not sure of the model

                This bus actually remained in service until June 1982 with National Welsh Omnibus Limited when it went into the reserve fleet. It was finally taken out of service in November 1982.
