SAX1G – History

The data on this page has been taken from the Bristol RE website, created by the late Carl Berry, to whom my thanks are due.

SAX1G was delivered as Red and White’s RC169 during Nov 1968.

It had 47 coach seats in its Eastern Coachworks body, number 17467.
When built it was fitted with a 2 piece coach (small) destination panel and a bus type door.
Its chassis (number RELH-4-184) was powered by a Leyland 680 engine.

This vehicle is now preserved.
