Reading Transport AEC Regent III
Sister, MRD146, is seen at sunny Southsea in June 2003. The bus had passed into preservation and reverted to it original fleet number, 3. However it was still with Reading Transport style white relief rather than original Reading Corporation cream.

Reading Transport AEC Reliance Neepsend
One of the last AEC Reliances delivered to Reading Corporation was 51 (CRD151C). The buses had rare Neepsend coachwork to a style similar to previous deliveries bodied by Burlingham. They seated only 34, with room for a large number of standees and dual doors. Reliance 51 is seen in Mill Lane depot sporting rather incongrously the modern "RT" logo.

Reading's Titan fleet arrived in the Reading Transport era and 68 (YJB68T) is seen when new in the town centre.

Reading Transport Leyland Titan
This rear view of 68 celebrates the assymetrical styling of this Leyland design. Apparently the radiator top up originally required ladder access! One of the Bristol VR jumbos can also be seen, approaching from Reading Stations.
