Taff-Ely 93 (GTX 936D) Rhydyfelin Cardinal Newman School Oct-1975 G Gould W4070

Subject: Taff-Ely BC 93 (GTX 936D)
Chassis: AEC Regent V 2MD3RA
Body: Longwell Green H34/26F
Location: Rhydyfelin, Cardinal Newman School
Date: Oct-1975

This unusual view at an unusual location has plenty of interest. These two Longwell Green bodies were unlike any other bus bodies - they were the only front-entrance double-deckers built by the company. An unusual feature is the use of standard vehicle side trafficator units at the rear - these were later replaced by more conventional fittings.

The yellow arm of a piece of plant at the extreme left indicates that demolition of the prefab houses that used to stand on the other side of the road had just been completed.
