    The bus featured here is a 1968 Daimler Fleetline CRC6-36, , Reg. No. XDH 56G.

    Note that this vehicle has been preserved, and as of 2011 was at the Wythall Transport Museum.

    I'm so happy to read the comment from Jamied. This is a beautiful bus and a prime example of our old British design. It will be a pleasure to visit the museum and have a look at this bus some day.
