Details: The next eight photographs were all taken in Wales, although at least two have a London connection. First up is this view of Leyland Leopard towing bus TXA114K of Arriva Wales, taken at (I think) Aberystwyth Garage on 1st April 1998. This Alexander-bodied vehicle started life as bus FPE14 in the Fife Scottish fleet in 1972. It was later neatly rebuilt as a towing vehicle, renumbered L10 then 1044, and repainted yellow. Having disposed of all my old TAG and Capital Transport bus handbooks I'm not sure how this vehicle ended up in the Arriva empire. I also can't find my old 'I-Spy Car Registration Numbers' book (!) but I believe that X group registrations (such as TXA) were not normally issued after the licensing office reorganisation of 1974.
