Red and White RC866 (GWO 8D) leaving Rochdale - 19 Sep 1970
Saturday 19 September 1970 – Red and White Services always ran Eastern Coachworks bodied Bristol RELH coaches on the joint Yelloway/Associated Motorways Rochdale to Barry Island service. GWO 8D, new in 1966, seen leaving the Yelloway coach station and garage at Rochdale. The company had a most interesting fleet numbering system using two class letters followed by a three digit number, the second and third digits indicating the year the coach was new. The first digit began at 1 each year. This coach carried fleet number RC866. (Bristol RE Coach, the 8th of 1966). This coach has the coach type entrance door rather than the folding doors featured on some of the coaches bought in subsequent years which came to Rochdale.
