Red & White Leyland Tiger HWO323 Typifying the Red & White fleet of the fifties is this Duple bodied Leyland Tiger (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, 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
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 the two numbers identifying the year new. 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 covering the roof. The bus is seen for sale at the 2002 Cardiff Centenary Rally.
