Details: Westlink was one of the first 'red' bus companies to start taking non-CDS supplied service vehicles, and was also a pioneer of using former London taxi cabs as crew ferry vehicles. At least four were operated, the first in early 1989. Photographed at their Hounslow Heath base on 30th August that year were LHV340P and TUW378S. Both were licensed as Austin vehicles (the FX4 was later built by Carbodies) and both were repainted red. None of the four lasted more than a couple of years, and Westlink later switched to using second-hand Ford Fiesta vans.
