There was one style of ECW bus body built on the Bristol RE chassis that RED&WHITE never bought - the larger flat screen bus of 1968 and 1969. However, in 1980 National Welsh Omnibus Services (successor to R&W), bought eight of these buses second-hand from Bristol Omnibus Company. They only lasted three years until 1983. All but one was scrapped that year.
THU 354G still survives and has now returned to the Bristol area and its original Bristol Omnibus Company Tilling green and cream livery.
