The Skerry Files

MALTA has long been a popular escape for Brits. wanting to soak up the almost year round sunshine in a typical English retreat atmosphere.  But MALTA is also a haven for old British lorries and buses and we are grateful to Peter Skerry a recent escapee to the sun from the UK for providing us with a selection of Welsh buses and coaches that can be seen there running today.

We also thank our regulars Keith Till and Ashley Lovering for their contributions.

We hope the information we have researched with Peters help is correct,  but any additional information will be welcomed as will future photos from our readers who visit Malta. 

 





 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Former Aberdare no.5 (TNY495G) is 1968 AEC Reliance with Willowbrook 41 seater bus body. It remains largly unchanged apart from the curved roof lights and is currently numerically the first bus in the Malta Bus Fleet being no.300 - DBY300.

This Bedford YLQ has a Duple Dominant 45 seater body and was new to Corvedale of Ludlow in 1976 but passed to Evans of Senghenydd before arriving in Malta.

Another ex. Aberdare bus is no. 4 ( TNY494G) and also an   AEC Reliance with Willowbrook 41 seat body. This would be a perfect preservation possibility being almost original which is quite surprising on Malta !
