Bebb Travel V32 HAX, X48 CNY and TIL 4035 (R35 AWO, ECZ 4635) at Cardiff - 27 Feb 2001
Tuesday 27 February 2001 (0750) – Three coaches of Bebb Travel PLC of Llantwit Fadre, South Wales bearing National Express livery seen in Cardiff bus station. On the right is TIL 4035, an S250 model new in August 1997 as R35 AWO (assigned ECZ 4635 at some point also?), loading for London on service 509. Directly behind is X48 CNY, a Plaxton Paragon bodied Volvo B10M also on the London service 509. Coming in on the left is V32 HAX, a Setra S315GT-HD assigned to the 0800 Cardiff to Aberdeen service 536 – although due to bad weather it would not venture north of Birmingham. Heavy snow on Sunday/Monday in Scotland prevented the 536 getting beyond Carlisle the previous day. Today I travelled to Birmingham by coach but not on this service. I had chosen the scenic route starting from Pontypridd via the Heads of the Valleys and Hereford on service 321. Upon arrival at Birmingham at 1315 V32 HAX was parked up. I don’t know what became of it later but I presumed it may have returned to Cardiff at the appointed time that the southbound Aberdeen to Cardiff service 536 departed Birmingham.
