Further work in early April

Towards the end of March further progress has lead to the o/s being panelled and the front of the bus being stripped for repair.

At the beginning of February our towbus, exWestern Welsh 1518 a Leyland Leopard with Willowbrook B45F bodywork and new to Barry Depot in 1971, left Barry for Stagecoach’s Blackwood depot to be returned to original specification utilising the rear portion of another bus we broke up for this reason.  Blackwood are familiar with Leopard service buses having run many when previously Islwyn Borough Council / IBT, Stagecoach being the natural successors to Western Welsh and National Welsh.  Work has now commenced preparing the back end for its extra few feet of body.
