Dennis introduced the underfloor-engined Lancet chassis in 1981 with rather limited success, many examples being used as welfare vehicles or mobile libraries. With the exception of a later demonstration vehicle the last service buses on this chassis were these three supplied to Taff-Ely.

35-37 (A35-37 XBO) were on the Dennis Lancet SD515 chassis and had East Lancs B47F bodies, although 35 was reseated to DP43F in December 1985. They introduced a brighter livery featuring more cream. All three passed to National Welsh after the 1988 takeover and moved on to subsequent owners.
