Red & White Leyland Tiger PS1/1 Duple 23 HWO323
Typifying the Red & White fleet of the fifties is this Duple bodied Leyland Tiger PS1/1, 23 (HWO323). The Red & White group ran an interesting and mixed fleet after the war, before all whole operation was sold to the government in the wake of nationalisation of the railways and their bus interests. Eventually the fleet became a standard red and cream Tilling fleet operating Bristol/ECW products. Its varous subsidiaries were absorbed by fellow Tilling group members. Venture of Basingstoke to Wilts & Dorset, Wilts & Dorset, Newbury & District and South Midland to Thames Valley and Cheltenham District to Bristol Omnibus. The bus is seen at an early Hillingdon Showbus in the seventies.
 
Red & White Bristol MW6G ECW UC.758
Red & White had a wonderful idiosyncratic numbering system consisting of a class identifier (usually one or two letters), followed by a stop, then the number of the bus in the batch and ending with two numbers identifying the year of purchase. Thus this ECW coach bodied Bristol MW6G, SWO986 received the fleet number UC.758 and was a stalwart performer on the London services along the A4 road. The livery application was slightly non standard Tilling practice, with the red waistband also covering the roof. The bus is seen for sale at the 2002 Cardiff Centenary Rally.
 
Red & White Bristol MW6G ECW U.765
ECW bus bodied Bristol MW6G U.765 (DAX610C) is now preserved and took part in the Cardiff Centenary Rally on both days in July 2002. It is seen on the Saturday at the Brecon Railway Centre prior to the Valley Road Run to the city.
