The History of Creamline

When driving from Neath towards Cwmafon and Port Talbot you pass through a hamlet Efail-Fach bridging the Afon Pelenna. Take a left turn and climb the Cwm Pelenna and you arrive at the small village of Tonmawr perched on the lower hilltop slopes of Bleanavon Mountain.

 

This is where DT Davies set up his motor coach business Creamline  in 1933 with a scheduled service from the village to Neath which was later to become the centre of route operations although the headquarters remained at Highbury Bungalow in Tonmawr.

 

The routes operated grew and in the mid 1970´s  services operated from Neath to Glanant Housing Estate at Cimla, Longford Road, Penyard and Pontrhydyfen and these routes were serviced by three aquisitions from Trimdon Motor Services, Marshall bodied Leyland Leopards.  These were a lucky purchase in 1974 as they were new in 1970, sadly none of the three survived into preservation…….unless you know different !
